Bau Gold Mine Museum, Kuching

The Bau Gold Mine Museum is a project under the 12th Malaysian Plan, with construction expected to begin in 2021.

The museum project would cost RM26 million but this cost would depend on the completion of the feasibility study.  The project is part of the Greater Bau Project which includes the Tasik Biru Resort City.

New Sarawak Tribune reported that the museum will be based on the ones in Waihi town in New Zealand and Sovereign Hill in Australia.


A park would also be developed within the vicinity of the museum, with tours also planned when the museum is completed.

Since the museum will sit just right beside Tasik Biru, a former gold mine, there are plans to also introduced tours to mining areas.


There has been no mention of entry fees and operation hours just yet.


The museum will be located within the vicinity of Tasik Biru lake, a popular recreation spot and a remnant of gold mining activities in Bau also known fondly as the Gold Town.
