E-mail Print PDF

The Sarawak Islamic Museum occupies the Maderasah, a concrete and brick building recognised as the only one of its kind in the state. Built in 1930 along Jalan P. Ramlee, it was originally meant as a college for higher Malay Studies. Today it is the first Islamic Museum to be established in South East Asia.

It has seven galleries exhibiting Islamic artefacts from around the region and separate fascinating collections of old coins, weapons, costumes, pottery, textiles and jewellery from the Islamic world. This museum is located behind the new wing of the Sarawak Museum across the road.
