New exhibition at Sarawak Museum

STUFFED wild animals over a century old and rare items are among the highlights of a new exhibition at the Sarawak Museum’s Dewan Tun Abdul Razak in Kuching.

The exhibition is called “66 - The Chosen Ones” and as its name implies, displays 66 artefacts from the museum’s archaeology, zoology, history, ethnographic and Islamic collections.

It commemorates the museum’s 120th anniversary which fell in 2006.

“We took the number six from 1886 and 2006 to come up with 66 for the exhibition,” museum director Sanib Said explained.

He said some of the exhibits were chosen because of their age. Collected in the 1880s and 1890s, these artefacts are over 100 years old now.
