THE PAVILION (1909)

 

 

This building, originally used as the medical headquarter, was one of the first public buildings of more than 2 stories high. Built with concrete frames and supported by bakau (mangrove timber) piling, it also had a concrete flat roof where occupants used to lounge and watch the setting sun, as fondly recalled through numerous writings of that era.  The building had been conserved and is currently used by the Museum Department as their Textile Museum.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

“ Miri AfroLatin Fiesta was such a blast! I'm really happy that I could be a part of this great event. Organisation was superb not mentioning an ambience created by lovely Borneo people. I left with a lot of beautiful memories and hope to be back soon.”
