Human skulls and a Multivision Theatre at Sabah Museum

The main museum in KK is the Sabah State Museum located at old Palace Hill, nearby Queen Elizabeth Hospital.  It is a unique complex built in 1985 with a museum, an ethno-botanic garden, a zoological garden and a heritage village – all in one place. Around the vicinity of the museum there is the Science and Technology Centre and Sabah Art.



The main building is inspired and based on the architecture of Murut and Rungus longhouses. Here you will find a central exhibition hall and six galleries with a rich collection of tribal and historical artifacts, relating to the people of Borneo, but also human skulls from Sabah´s headhunting past. You can also find an exhibition about the petroleum industry, as well as a multivision theatre.

Within the complex there is also a coffee-shop and a restaurant that we can recommend.
