Sabah State Museum Kota Kinabalu
#1 of 7 Museums in West Coast Division
The main building of the museum is divided into several sections, including history, culture, natural history, textiles, ethnography, prehistoric, headhunters, etc.
The museum closes at 5 and we only got there at 3.45 but we had enough time to do the main galleries about archeology, 19 and 20C history and look at some artefacts from the headhunting era.
