As mentioned by akadir64, there are indeed 2 museums opposite each other but one is closed due to construction. The only one open there (near the Padang) at the moment is the Sarawak Museum. Their exhibitions include - wildlife of Borneo, indigenous tribes of Sarawak (theres an exhibit showing longhouses), the Forts of Sarawak, fossils, etc.
45 minutes is enough for that museum. You don't need an UBER to get there. This museum should be included in your walking tour around the Carpenter street area (chinatown). Google maps and your legs are better. :D
