via Borneo Post, 16 June 2019: The Malaysian Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youth and Sports expects that the new Sarawak Museum campus will be opened at the end of next year.
The new Sarawak Museum Campus is expected to be handed over to the Ministry of Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youth and Sports this coming week, said Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youth and Sports Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah.
However, Abdul Karim said the RM300 million new Sarawak Museum Campus that commenced construction in 2016, would not be opened to the public until end of 2020.
“I wish it could be opened to public immediately because we could not wait to showcase and let the public have a look into what’s going on inside there.
“Museum being a museum, even if it’s just an artefact or display that is being showcased, there must be a write up, and that write up is delaying it,” said Abdul Karim when met by the reporters at his Hari Raya Open House at the Penview Convention Centre here, today.
