Heritage Sri Aman Museum (Fort Alice)

It was built in 1864, is the oldest heritage building in Sri Aman, constructed following the victory of Rajah Charles Brooke, the second Rajah of Sarawak, over Rentap, the last of the major Iban chieftains. The Fort was named after Charles Brooke’s wife, Margaret Alice Lili de Windt. It served as defensive sructure controlling the Lupar Rive

The fort, like other forts in Sarawak, is built of belian. It has square floorplan with a watchtower at each corner. What is attractive about the fort is the large open central courtyard as well as its entrance steps which can be drawn in time of attack. The whole fortress is surrounded by a fence of sharpened iron spikes.

Fort James was built to control the activities of the Iban (especially Rentap and his Skrang allies) from the Saribas.
