The Sultan’s Museum

sultan.jpgThis small museum in the south of Soasio, a short walk north of the fort, holds the relics of the Tidorese sultanate.
Its modest appearence reflects the fact that the sultanate was abolished here during much of the 20th century, and the palace itself was destroyed, too.
Nevertheless, you can see the royal crown and other regalia here – if you ever find it open, that is! It seems permanently closed, a tracking down the caretaker with the key is not an easy task.
