  • Very nice surroundings. Chanced upon this while walking in the vicinity and there are volunteer guides at the gallery. Very friendly and informative. Opened for 2 years but little known venue hidden among the bushes. State visit gifts from other countries are on display..Seasonal, these collections will be changed. Nice to check it out if you are around de area. There are photo opportunity spots with Istana restricted area rooms as backdrop. At the end of your walk, you can also take home a state imprint (self pressed) bookmark. Love it! Spend about 20 minutes here.
