Where to stay in Kuching

The most popular area to stay in Kuching remains just south of the Sarawak River, where you can find affordable hotels offering basic but comfortable rooms. South of Jalan Main Bazaar, budget backpacker accommodations in the form of hostels and guesthouses draw many visitors with limited means. Consider the districts north of the river for more exclusive and resort-style alternatives.

  • As the title suggests, the building itself is more interesting than the exhibition within. It's nice to walk around the grounds and snap a few photos.  more »
  • Didn't manage to go in because I arrived after visiting hours. however, even from the outside, you can actually notice that this place really does holds some significance for our country's history and...  more »
  • We were overjoyed to find this place - not too well publicised in the guidebook we were using. It's a modern, informative, well restored place with stunning views at the top! It is a bit pricey but wo...  more »

  • The building is simply beautiful and well maintained. Exhibits are well displayed. A real world class museum. A must visit in Kuching!
  • Going there by foot is like treasure hunting! First you can hitch a ride on local sampans (small boats), then you need to venture your way up through the village then onto the hill. Along the way you will also have a great look at our Sarawak's Parliament Building. The view on the fort is like no other especially during sunset!
  • RM20 for foreigners.. i must admit we almost didn't pay. The rain helped make up our mind and we were not disappointed. Very clear and informative museum on the history of Sarawak and the White Rajahs (which i must admit came as completely new information) and well worth visiting !
  • Really happy that the old fort was restored and made into a museum. It costs to go in and prices depends on who you are, locals ($) are charged cheaper than foreigners ($$). Definitely worth going as it gives you an insight on the Brookes on who they are, as well as their interactions with Sarawak over time.
  • A little bit difficult to find as the entrance is relatively hidden. Otherwise despite being a small gallery the artifacts are extremely well maintained, the place is clean, & staff is super friendly. Things on display are the personal items of the white Rajahs like photos, wallet, cutlery, busts etc. The fort itself is also extremely well maintained. I don't mind paying RM10 for the entrance. A must-visit for all tourist visiting Kuching!
