Royal Abu Bakar Museum (GPS: 1.455, 103.75636) is the museum within Istana Besar in Johor Bahru. It comprises the main building, or Grand Palace, which houses the treasures of the royal household, including four-poster teak beds. Even now, the bedrooms are still used for the lying-in-state of deceased members of the Johor royal family.

The Reception Room is an exquisite hall with a Baccarat crystal table and chairs. The Throne Room has a pair of gilt thrones. The room is used every year by the Sultan of Johor for the investiture ceremony, which is held to coincide with the sultan's birthday. The Banqueting Room is yet another opulent room in the complex.
