Baram Regional Museum, Fort Hose

The Baram Regional Museum was built in 1898 and officially opened in 1997. It is housed at Fort Hose, which stands on the top of the hill overlooking the Baram River.

Initially, it was used to monitor the activities of the rebels who opposed the Brooke regime. Unfortunately, The Fort was burnt down in 1994 and was rebuilt on the exact site according to its original design and architecture. Upon its completion, it was officially declared as a museum. The exhibits in this museum comprise historical and cultural artifacts belonging to local communities such as the Kayan, Kenyah, Kelabit and Penan. There are also displays on their economic and other activities. 



Closed to public since 5 November 2018

Will be open to public until further notice.
