If you would like to understand more about the Murut people, one of the indigenous people living in the northern part of the Borneo, please head over to Sabah Murut Cultural Centre.
The impressive Sabah Murut Cultural Centre building is located about 10 kilometers away from the small township of Tenom and was built at a cost of about RM12 million. The building was built based on the Murut people’s authentic architecture design. The main building was constructed using local timbers (Belian – hardwood timber) particularly on the building structure and pillars.
The Sabah Murut Cultural Centre houses exhibits relating to the Murut people such as traditional arts, jars, gongs, furniture and paintings. Occasionally, there are stalls selling hand-made souvenirs by the Murut people.
