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

“Interesting to look around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

The museum is a collection of the sultans belongings which he isn't using. Mostly gifts from other nations and the carriages from his coronation and silver jubilee, it isn't anything amazing but its nice to look around, mist of the gifts are from other parts south east Asia so you you get an insite into those cultures to.

“Do not miss this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

First of all try and get a good look at the Dome of this building.
You leave your shoes outside and are given slippers.
So much history and the ground floor is just something to see.
You are given a locker to use for your personal bags
There is a shop to buy post cards and small items.

“Take it for what it is.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

This isn't a museum per se. It is more of a glory box. It is mostly made up of a collection of gifts received by the current Sultan. There is no information to go along with the gifts, except for who gave them. Nevertheless it is an enjoyable way to pass an hour or two. There is an excellent diorama of the coronation hidden away behind the display of the ceremonial chariot/ sedan chair thingy and a few other little gems, but don't come here expecting to be enlightened.

“Impressive.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

From the name, we expected lots of native costumes but were impressed by a large, modern museum giving history, customs,etc as well as the full local version of the British Royal Coach. Be warned - wear clean socks as the whole museum is a no shoes area.
