Sabah Murut Cultural Centre Tenom



The Sabah Murut Cultural Centre, Tenom (Pusat Kebudayaan Murut Sabah, Tenom) is the focal point of the Murut ethnic groups in Sabah to develop and promote their cultural arts and heritage. Located 13km before Tenom town on the main road from Keningau, the centre is housed within a uniquely large timber complex of traditional Murut village architecture. The construction of the centre started in 1994 and completed in 1996. The idea of having a centre for the Murut community was mooted by Datuk Kadoh Agundong, the then Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports, Sabah.  

In line with the functions of Sabah Cultural Board, the centre serves as a venue for conducting seminars, workshops, forums, courses, lectures, culture researches and any other activities in regards to the development and promotion of the Murut cultural arts and heritage. The centre also provides facilities such as auditorium, kiosk, exhibition hall, traditional costumes, and other traditional products and equipment for rental.
