  • We had a great experience at The Ranee Museum. It was so interesting to read about the influence of the Ranee rather than her husband (there is a whole other amazing gallery for that - The Brooke Gallery). The Ranee Museum tastefully and informatively follows her from a young child, through to meeting her husband, their move to Sarawak and then how she became a much loved part of the Sarawakian community. Really interesting with some amazing and priceless artefacts. Location wise it is walking distance from the Main Bazaar and there is an amazing restaurant with great coffee - what else do you need!
  • Mini museum located at The Old Court House, Kch. If u want to visit the Fort Margherita after visiting the Ranee Museum, try to buy the explore ticket instead, entrance fee to the fort is included.
