The doors will open to reveal the rare collections at the Sabah Museum here next week.

Visitors will get to see exhibits and specimens collected from the 1960s at the museum’s conservatory, apart from learning how they are stored.

The open day, from May 18 to May 23, is being held in conjunction with the state level World Museum Day Celebration. Entry will be free during the period.

A museum spokesman said the open day was normally a hit among visitors because they get to see many hidden “treasures” kept in the conservatory.
