Said to be one of the best preserved Dutch buildings in Indonesia, Fort Rotterdam was built around 1667 on the site of a Gowanese fort built 100 years before. The black stone walls have been partly restored, as have most of the buildings within.

Inside the fort is a small museum with an eclectic collection of cultural artifacts from South Sulawesi. The museum is only open Tuesday to Sunday mornings, from 8:00 to 12:30. The fort is open every day from 8:00 to 18:00. A 'donation' is expected to gain entry. About 10,000 Rupiah (0.60 USD) is enough.
