A wonderfully kitsch ode to felines, Kuching’s Cat Museum celebrates the city’s favourite animal with artefacts from all over the world. Find mummified Egyptian cats and accounts of the feline’s role in Chinese, Malay, and Japanese societies, including displays of the famous maneki-neko beckoning cats. There's also lots of porcelain knick knacks, collections of stamps and posters, and even an exhibition of felines in music. If your kid's a fan of these imperious beasts, he'll be delighted at this museum's unusual displays.
