  • A huge museum of things owned by the Sultan of Brunei. Of special note are the gifts from foreign heads of state. Definitely worth a visit when in Brunei. No pictures allowed.
  • You can spend a lot of time here. It's staggering to see the money spent on the Sultan, both in Brunei and the gifts from foreign nations. Go with a non-political mind. It's something to see. I've never walked through a museum in my bare feet before. Bring socks if you get cold easily. Small gift shop.
  • Basically a royal museum. Everything is about the sultan and royal family. They display the many gifts that the sultan has received from other countries. Not a must see but its an excuse to soak up some A/C on a hot day.
  • if you want to know more about the current Sultan go here. The place gives you an idea on the malay Brunei Sultan, its procession on Sultan Brunei Coronation in 1967 and all the gift given by dignitaries from all over the world.
  • It is a museum of Brunei. It is free of charge to get in but cameras, phones were not allowed to enter. So no picture. You can find lots of different kind of history weapons from sword to gun. You will find the king history remarked as well.
