  • The Royal Regalia Building Museum has a profusion of exhibits related to the commemorations of the 25 years of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah's rule of Brunei. It is located in the heart of the Bandar Seri Begawan, the state capital of Brunei, to the north of Pedang.
  • Bigger than I expected and some parts are interesting and worth a visit. You don't have many options as a traveler in Brunei so yeah, visit ;-)
  • A good understanding of the Royalty in Brunei and their culture. Plus, I used to visit the museum during my school days because of the air conditioning and to play hide and seek with my friends.
  • This is such an interesting and quirky place! Probably our favourite place within BSB.
  • A very nice museum giving grand insight into the royalty of this nation. Lots of exhibits, easy to get around, and quite interesting.
