Petroleum Museum in Miri Sarawak ( exhibits photographs and information about petroleum industry )
The Grand Old Lady - Miri is the birthplace of Sarawak's and Malaysia's petroleum industry, which remains the major industry of the city. The first oil well was drilled by Shell in 1910 (the Grand Old Lady), and is now a state monument and one of Miri's tourist attractions. ( My husband works with Shell Sarawak Berhad- Miri )
