Royal Regalia Museum
The Royal Regalia Museum - one of the richest places in Bandar Seri Begawan - is home to the luxurious gifts given by different heads of state to the Sultan of Brunei.
What do heads of states give as a gift to one of the world’s richest leaders? Guests can find the answer inside the Royal Regalia Museum. Photos are not allowed inside, and for good reason – luxurious gifts such as gold plated swords, chairs fit for a throne, silver Angkor Wat model from Cambodia, vases with diamond details, and other extravagant presents can be found here. A spectacular exhibit inside is a reenactment scene of soldier mannequins providing service to the sultan. Everything here feels larger and more expensive than life. Shoes are not allowed inside so guests are advised to bring socks.
The Royal Regalia Museum is located in Jalan Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien, Bandar Seri Begawan.
