KOTA KINABALU: Despite the relaxation of tourism and cultural activities announced last week, major tourism and cultural spots in the state capital have yet to be opened to the public.

A visit to the State Museum here on Wednesday (Feb 24) found that the facility is still closed, with temporary closure notices at the gate and entrance to the premises.

It is stated that the museum is closed to visitors during the movement control order until further notice.

A similar scene was found at the Sabah Art Gallery nearby, where notices have been pasted at the front door informing the public about the closure.

"If we are open, it will be simultaneously with the Sepilok Orang Utan conservation centre (in Sandakan). We are awaiting further directives," said the spokesman.
