What we say: 3.5 stars

It was passed onto Sultan Ismail Petra as his official residence and then declared a museum in 1991. As simple as this building presents itself it has quite a colourful history and is jam-packed with collectibles and royal possessions, such as gifts, paintings, clothes and even hunting 'trophies' such as a tiger skin rug and a stuffed ostrich.
