  • This museum is just okay and I'm a fan of local museums. I was walking the Sandakan Heritage Trail and saw the museum across from the William Pryer Monument. Since it was just past noon, I thought I'd cool off inside. Only two rooms were air-conditioned. Most of the displays were old, grainy, black-and-white photos someone could publish in a book. No refreshments available and no gift shop. The Ministry of Tourism in Sabah, Datuk Christine Liew, needs to get better cooperation from the local businesses to promote this museum through much needed improvements. I found the traditional house models and the traditional musical instruments the most interesting exhibits. I suggest the show some clips from the movies the Martin's made in the twenties and thirties. They might even try selling copies of them on DVD.
  • Good environment and i renew my understanding of Sandakan.
