Here, one can view film footage of the auspicious event, amongst other Royal Regalia that made an appearance during the occasion.

The is a great museum showcasing the Sultan's coronation. Take time to walk through the whole museum. You never know what might catch your eye and peek your interests. Buy a few souvenirs since they are about the same price in other places.

We got our hotel to book a half day tour which included this museum but we were a bit rushed due to time constraint. There's lots to see inside. I believe you can get a ticket at the door also
