Overview

A tribute to the sultan and the grand trappings of Royalty, this museum is a highlight of any trip to Brunei. The main gallery presents an impressive recreation of the coronation of His Majesty The Sultan, displaying the gilded carriage which carried the newly crowned Sultann through the streets of the capital city, along with gold and silver ceremonial armour. The Royal Exhibition Gallery showcases a selection of Royal Regalia from His Majesty's childhood days up to the time of his coronation, such as jewel-encrusted crowns, thrones, garments and His Majesty's revered silver Keris (dagger). The Silver Jubilee Gallery celebrates the mark of His Majesty's 25th ruling year. Here, one can view film footage of the auspicious event, amongst other Royal Regalia that made an appearance during the occasion. There is also the Constitutional History Gallery, which houses documents, photographs, film and recordings, and a gallery devoted to the life of His Majesty The Sultan up to the time of his coronation. Opening Hours : Sat-Thu, 9am-4:30pm , Fri 9am-11:30am, 2:30pm-4:30pm Shoes are to be removed before entering

"Look at how much money we have" is the overall feeling we left with. I wouldn't recommend going, or at least not staying for very long. Not worth the trip.

It's amazing how they were able to house the Sultan's Collection in one building, show casing the Sultan's collection of gifts from all over the world. I feel so proud when I saw some from my country The Philippines.

We got our hotel to book a half day tour which included this museum but we were a bit rushed due to time constraint. There's lots to see inside. I believe you can get a ticket at the door also
