The Royal Regalia Building is now known the Royal Regalia Museum. The renaming that began since yesterday was in conjunction with the Golden Jubilee Celebration of His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam's Accession to the Throne, and this ran concurrently with the launch of the museum's new logo. According to a media conference by the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports, the renaming is in line with the building's status as a museum that showcases the Royal Regalia, especially those pertaining to His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam.
With the renaming, a new gallery has been renovated and added value. The gallery named as 'Galeri Pameran Jubli Emas; Lima Dekad di Atas Takhta Kerajaan' or the Golden Jubilee Gallery: Five Decades on the Throne, is divided into five sections. This includes the Installation of His Majesty as the 29th Sultan, and His Majesty's Coronation ceremony on the 5th of October 1967 and the 1st of August 1968. The 50-years development of His Majesty's reign is also showcased in the gallery, and this includes the implementation of the Wawasan Brunei 2035.
The existing galleries also underwent several changes. This includes adding more information pertaining to the galleries, and the use of technology such as the information kiosk, projector, video clips, and modern sound system. The Royal Regalia building was officiated by His Majesty during the Silver Jubilee Celebration of His Majesty's Accession to the Throne on 30th September 1992, and it has 3 main galleries. The Royal Regalia Museum is open starting soon from 9 in the morning to 5 in the afternoon everyday, except on Friday, where it will be closed from 11.30 in the morning to 2.30 in the afternoon.
