Prepare to walk barefoot in this carpeted complex filled with treasures collected throughout the history of the Bruneian royal family. Cameras are allowed only in the display area near the entrance. The rest of the complex where photos aren't allowed are a feast for the eyes. You'll be surprised at the treasures in display from all over the world--most of... More

Taken here by our tour guide (you really need one, try Borneo Trekkers, Tim or Zul). Takes about 1.5 hours but us an absolute treasure trove of all the gifts the Sultan has been given. Also, huge history around the royal family and the last coronation/silver anniversary. Very clean and well organised place.

This place is basically a museum showcasing the Sultan's private gifts/ collections over the decades. Steeped in culture, it's a nice insight into the cultural aspects of the royal family. Plus there's a section showcasing the private collection of the Sultan's gifts received over the years.

Amazing to see all the golden items that were use by the Sultan's family. Upon entering the museum, you have to leave your shoes and wear the slippers provided at the entrance. Then a key to the locker will be given to you, leave everything in the locker before they allow you to explore the area. No taking of photos... More

One of my most expected places which I would like to visit is Royal Regalia! I was greatly interested in the Sultan's treasure to know their rich life. At the time to enter there, I felt their greatness through the made in golden car which was used when the current Sultan was succeeded the crown. This place is recommend for... More

As soon as you step in you get this royal air feeling. There is so much history & so much to see within this museum, could have spent hours there if I wasn't on a time constraint. Absolutely beautiful, well worth the trip

Open from 8.30 - 17.00 Take your shoes off before going inside. Leave you bags or camera in the locker. You can walk to the museum from Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque. When I visited in Sep 2014 the crowns weren't there. Too bad because those crowns was the reason I visited the museum, overall the exhibition was good.
