Fort Margherita (Brooke Gallery)

Fort Margherita was built in 1879 to guard Kuching’s river approaches from pirates. Named after Charles Brooke’s wife, Ranee Margaret, it is an extremely interesting building. Recently renovated and turned into the Brooke Gallery (see Museums and Galleries in Kuching), it houses a wide range of memorabelia of the Brooke Era. Sampans go to the Fort from various Waterfront jetties and it is a short walk form the northern end of the Darul Hana Bridge. You may only enter the fort if you pay the entrance fee for the Brooke Gallery.
