Owner description: 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

“Spend some time to visit it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

It's not very big museum and it's free. So why not visit this. Only things I didn't like about the visit were:
- you cannot take pictures (you put your bags into lockers during the visit)
- and you have to remove your shoes (ok, thats basically fine, but one area of the museum - where soldiers are carrying carriage - there is so cold floor, so I basically run through the exposition).

“Really wasn't all that impressed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

At least it was free. I found it rather boring walking through and many things were not written in English so at times I wasn't quite sure what I was looking at. Lots of examples of gifts that were given to the Sultan that are just a little opulent. I couldn't fathom the worth of some of the items. I would recommend it for anybody visiting but only becuase there really isn't that much else to see here but just don't expect too much.

“A must visit !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

If you come to Brunei, I'll highly suggest you to visit the Royal Regalia. You can learn the history of Bruneian Sultanate here. And you can see those equipment which been used in the royal event.
