Museum Kayu Tuah Himba, Wisata Kota Tenggarong Kutai Kartanegara

Location : Kelurahan Panji Sukarame, Kecamatan Tenggarong, Kabupaten Kutai Kartanegara, Kalimantan Timur, Indonesia.

We have to admit that wood museum is not exactly the normal tourist’s cup of tea unless of course if you are a botanist or forester. Most people would think wood is such a boring subject but here at Tuah Himba the way things were organized it was actually very informative and interesting.

There were so many species of trees that I never knew existed and some of the names have been forgotten due to fact that these timbers have long been phased out of the market. Reason – non sustainable logging.

If only those leaves could be sealed (when freshly harvested) in transparent resin to preserve their original colours.

Locating the museum was quite a hassle. Although it was situated at an isolated place not far from Tenggarong there were no signage to guide us. Even a local like my friend Antok had trouble finding it. Most of the photos in this album may not be relevant to most of you but we need to upload them nevertheless, for our future reference.
