Siniawan Police Museum

The Siniawan Police Museum is currently undergoing renovations and reconstruction works.

It was previously the old Police Station, which will be converted into the new museum with an allocation of RM6 million.

Works on the museum have been announced in June 2023, with the 100 year old museum expected to showcase the history of Sarawak and the police force in Sarawak under the Brooke, Japanese, British and Malaysian governments.

The police station itself is considered an important landmark as was built more than 100 years ago.

Aside from the plan seen below, there’s not much to be mentioned just yet.
