Canada Hill, the Petroleum Museum & Oil Well No.1

3 Jan 2015

Canada Hill


If you want to see excellent views of Miri, Canada Hill will be a good choice.

Grand Old Lady


When at Canada Hill, don’t forget to visit The Grand Old Lady and Petroleum museum as it situated on the top of Canada Hill. The Grand Old Lady is the first place which discovers oil well.


At the bottom of well, there have statues depicting the old days when drilling was not use high tech equipment.


Petroleum Museum


Petroleum Museum situated close to Grand Old Lady.


During my visit to Petroleum museum, it has cultured rain forest exhibition which started from 29 November 2014 until 29 April 2015.



The times we visit museum, there were not so crowd and free of charge to visit this museum.






Inside of museum has many exhibition related petroleum or geological. It reminds me the times I studied geology in University.




You even can saw wall art which you can take picture with.


You manually turn this, the gear will turn around and has light on it.


There did not have bus service to Canada Hill but it’s take 10 minutes’ drive from Bintang Mall. If you don’t have own transport, you can take a cab and ask the cab driver to wait as taxi seldom come by this area or you can same like me that rent a taxi for a tour.
