Islamic Heritage Museum

The Islamic Museum presents a clear picture of the rich historical heritage and special culture of the Muslim community in Sarawak and throughout the Malay-Indonesian archipelago. The displays trace the connections of the development of Islam here with the rest of the world.

The museum consists of seven galleries set around a central courtyard garden, each with a different theme.

The Islamic Museum building was first built for a school. It was then known as the James Brooke Malay college. Later it became known as the Maderasah Melayu Sarawak (1930). In 1992, the Islamic Museum came into being.
