  • I didn't have a great understanding about the Royal family in Brunei so found this museum gave me a good insight. After removing my shoes I entered the welcoming atmosphere of the air-conditioned muse...  more »
  • A colossal waste of time. Tacky to say the least. Are the gifts you have made to the Sultan. Really nothing interesting, at least in my opinion. There you go right because there is so much to see, not a BSB because it's free and because the air conditioning is a ball! The reps are still very kind.

  • Huge Museum with many of the gifts to the Sultan, weapons and clothes. Also two very impressive state carriages used at different ceremonies are on display. The entrance is free. Shoes must be left outside - shoe-shelves are available. Proper attire is essential to enter. Cameras and mobile phones must be left by the entrance. locker-boxes and coat/bag check are also available. There is also a small gift-shop. The staff of the museum is more or less friendly. The museum is sort of a shrine for the emperor and his family. The wealth and the number of objects on display are impressive. Its pretty cold (AC) inside - you may want to bring a jacket or light sweater.
  • Very informative history about Brunei's monarchy. It's a big museum and has a lot of content about the current His Majesty. It can get a bit tiresome halfway through as there can be unnecessary (irrelevant) information but overall it helps to understand how much the people of Brunei admire and love their Sultan. Also, it's a great way to get out of the tropical weather. A nice reprieve! Please be aware that you will not be able to take photos unless you're in the main open area. You will also have to take your shoes off prior entering the building. And they will provide free lockers for your bags too.
  • Worth to visit, to see and understand Sultan's omnipresence in Brunei. Unfortunately you can not take pictures from inside but you can take a photo in the lobby / entrance hall.
  • It's the pictorial display of history of Sultanate of Brunei! Informative and very well maintained! A must visit for a tourist!
  • This is such an interesting and quirky place! Probably my favourite place within BSB.
