  • I'm very much interesting here is presented the history of the history of the present King Hassanal Bolkiah and Brunei independence as tribute from the country and the treasures are just displayed in a Museum, soft carpet is laid, Hotel airconditioner tourism is worth a visit in itself was enough (laughs). Staff leave luggage, did not take the admission point.

  • Upon entering the place, you need to take off you shoes. You are only allowed to take photos in the lobby. When entering the museum (where the gifts are located), you will be requested to leave your things in a locker or leave it at the counter (if your things are quite big). Taking photos inside the museum are not allowed. The display inside were beautiful. But then I think it’s much better if they have guides around the place so that they could share a little about Brunei’s history.
  • you can see the all royal artifacts here. Prohibited to take your phone to the gallery, but you can take a lot of picture inside the main hall. You can see the history of Brunei. The service was good, the guide also speak English well.
  • Interesting museum with some beautiful artefacts. Free to enter. Photography is not allowed and it can be difficult to understand the history without an English speaking guide, as some of the descriptions are only in Malay.
  • Definitely worth a visit. You can’t take pictures inside, only at the “lobby area”. You have to take off shoes and the floor is cold. So wear socks!
  • Govt museum. No entrance fee. Great.
