  • This museum is well worth visit. Well presented and fascinating look at the history of the Brook family or 'white rajahs' who had a significant and lasting impact on Sarawak.

  • The Brooke Gallery opened September 24th 2016. It is a permanent exhibition on the Brooke's - the white Rajah's of Sarawak - by the Brooke Trust and the Sarawak Museum. Very interesting to understand the unique early history from Sarawak. Makes a trip to the fort worthwhile with this excellent exhibition. Since end September 2016 there is an admission fee. Members of Friends of Sarawak Museum pay RM 2. Take the sampan from the waterfront across and walk to the fort. An authentic way to visit the fort. The fort - and therefore also the Brooke Gallery - is unfortunately not accessible for wheelchair users. Neither is there any assist for blind or visually impaired persons.
  • The most beautiful museum exhibition in all of Borneo - a really magical story sensitively told
  • Very educational. Enjoyed a lot.
  • Sarawak was ruled by the Brooke family for a hundred years. The legacy of Raj are exhibited here at this restored fort.
  • The Fort reopened with The Brooke Gallery in place on 24 September - Well worth a visit to explore Sarawak's amazing history!
