This museum was once the palace of Gunung Tabur Sultanate, built around 1810 AD. The building complex consists of main palace in the middle and smaller buildings at the surrounding. It was kept clean and beautiful. The museum attendant explained that the original palace was destroyed by NICA army. The building we visited was the restoration of the palace. Inside the palace we observed the sultan's throne, guest room, family room, bride room, and some other rooms to display the artefacts.

A small palace but nice and tidy, worth the time to visit.

Gunung Tabur is about 20's drive from Berau or 5 minutes by speedboat; the reason is because we have to cross the river by this bridge is a little bit further then the central of town.

This was actually rebuilt as a temporary shelter after Japanese world war. However, it is very charming, no thanks to the 99 year old princess who lives in the smaller house. She welcomed us to a simple house where she lives with her 103 bedridden sister. They are the children of the last king and their brother was killed by the Japanese during World War 2. They live in the smaller house filled with memorabilia of their live as princesses such as their family heritage and family photos.

Both the smaller house and the museum have a yellow theme. Once we enter the museum, we are in the throne room. Next to it, there are various bedrooms, all with yellow bedsheets. The kitchen is interesting - they show how they use to filter the water previously. There is a baby room and they explained how they weighed their babies with cooling fruits on the other side. There are also armoury which they used such as the canons and ceremonial knives. There are also snippets of ordinary life such as dayak beading.

Would recommend a visit to this place as an introduction to the history of this area.
