The Timber Museum is situated in the Sarawak Timber Industry Development Council building (Wisma Sumber Alam) in Petra Jaya. Anyone with an interest in forestry, traditional wood items, forest products and the development of the timber industry should head here.
Timber Museum showcases the unique composition of the state’s forest resources and its vibrant timber industry. The museum also features the forest heritage including the traditional wood products which are associated with local customs and traditions.
The establishment of the timber museum is aimed at enhancing knowledge and understanding particularly among students, educators, nature lovers and tourists on the commitment of the State Government in developing the timber industry besides the efforts to sustain the forests and wildlife.
Since its establishment in 1987, the Timber Museum had ushered about 200,000 visitors from across the globe. Besides providing information on forestry sector in Sarawak the museum also continues to benefit those who do not have the chance to see our forests for themselves particularly those who are on short visits. Due to overwhelming response from the public, the museum undergoes continuous upgrading in consonance with their expectation and to ensure that they get the natural feeling of the forest environment.
