I’m not sure why this is called the “Technology” Museum as there is nothing technological about it. It’s a museum about Brunei customs and traditions. It’s not particularly realistic. If going to Sarawak, the Cultural Museum in Kuching is far better. But given that it’s...More

We went on December 15th 2018 and it was closed for renovations. I hope they open it again soon because it was one of my favorite places for visitors to learn a bit about Brunei’s history. It is a shame that it is closed.

When we visited the museum, we were the only visitors there. The exhibits consisted mostly of little huts with mannequins inside depicting use of equipment for work and living. Honestly, I felt I wouldn’t have missed much if I had skipped a visit there.
