Run by a non-profit government agency, this two-storey shop has a pretty good selection of Malay, Bidayuh, Iban and Orang Ulu handicrafts – check out the cowboy hats made entirely of bark and the conical terendak (Melanau hats). Housed in the Round Tower, constructed in 1886 and used by the dreaded Kempeitai (Japanese military police) during the occupation, which is why some locals believe it’s haunted.
