Brooke exhibits in the Sarawak Museum

Here are a few photos of the Brooke exhibits at the Sarawak Museum in Kuching, when I visited some time ago. Probably time I made another visit ...

Fig 1: On Sir James Brooke, First Rajah

Fig 2: Sir James Brooke's sword

Fig 3: Masthead from "The Royalist" (I think)

Fig 4 Bust of the Second Rajah, Sir Charles Brooke

I'll try to add more photos when I next visit ...


  1. James Yong:-

    the exhibits remain the same.

    that sword probably he won it from a drinking contest in a pub near his home. Probably cost nothing.

  2. A long time ago, there was this exhibit mockup of part of a longhouse, complete with skulls hanging from the ceiling. Was cool. I it still there?
