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

The museum is beautiful and worth to visit to understand the Sultanate a bit. I enjoyed browsing through the presents given to the Sultan. Downside was that most of the description wasn't in English so I didn't understand what I am looking at.

This museum has an amazing collection of royal regalia including a collection of lavish gifts from all over he world. Most impressive is the set up of the coronation procession. More English information is all that I would add

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
