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.

This is where the Sultan displays the most luxurious items from his lavish coronation. The Royal " coach" is on display with models of the men who pulled/ pushed it . There are treasures from nearly every country in the world. Lots of bling. Entrance is free. There is a small gift shop with reasonable prices.

The is a great museum showcasing the Sultan's coronation. Take time to walk through the whole museum. You never know what might catch your eye and peek your interests. Buy a few souvenirs since they are about the same price in other places.

Free entry for tourists. However, you must keep your belongings in a safe locker provided at the front desk. Great collection including the chariot, a few cannons and other royal arts, models, old photographs and replicas. Check out a small gift shop within the building for souvenirs

One of the museum in Brunei I like most. I like the room which showcase the carriage and mannequins soldier with traditional costume. I suggest that visitors should spend plenty of time here in order to read about the monarchy and Brunei's history.
