Sri Aman Heritage Museum, Fort Alice


The building was built in 1864 during the reign of the second Rajah Brooke, Sir Charles Brooke and is the oldest building in Sri Aman. The fort was built as a government office as well as to avoid attacks on the merchant ships and ngayau activities around the downstream of Batang Lupar River.

Originally built in Nangga Skrang and named Fort James, in 1853 Fort James was attacked and a Rajah officer named Alan Lee was killed. As a result of this event, Fort James has been moved to Simanggang where its location is more strategic and protected from enemy threats. Uniquely, Fort Simanggang was built using the original material of The James Fort itself. The fort was later named Fort Alice, the name of his wife Margaret Alice Lili de Windt. The fort was refurbished in 2013 and is now being used as the Sri Aman Heritage Museum.
