There are quite a few things to see close to the museum, including: The Astana, Stadium Sarawak, DBKU Orchid Garden, Fort Margherita and the Sarawak State Library. If visitors head across the river into Kuching they can visit the Sarawak Museum and Kuching City Mosque.

There are quite a few accommodation options on the south side of the river that are appealing to all budgets, from one-star hostels to the lavish Pullman Kuching. In fact, the entire riverfront area is dotted with accommodation and is the most popular area for travellers to stay in.

Most of the hotels near the Cat Museum are two- and three-star guesthouses and inns, though there are a few more luxurious properties nearby, including the Hilton Kuching and Riverside Majestic Hotel.

Some also have a swimming pool, fitness facilities, business services and a restaurant onsite. Many of these properties also offer free parking, which is a plus for visiting the Cat Museum, as it is hard to access by public transportation.
