The Niah Cave's archaeological heritage and skeletal collection, a Hornbill casque earring, 19th century beads (lukut sekala) and necklaces, and an Iban war boat, which is more than 100 years old, are some of the highlights at the brand new Borneo Cultures Museum in Kuching, Sarawak, which is scheduled to open next month.

This 30,000sq m state-of-the-art building, with five levels, houses the rich history, culture and heritage of the diverse population and indigenous people of Sarawak and Borneo.
