Just A Simple Museum

It is quite informative but very quaint; only 3 exhibits. It Would not take you an hour to get around.

This museum will let you see some of the history of Brunei and the way of living. If I am correct it was donated by the Shell company.

Should be called the Heritage Museum! Situated on the Kota Batu road. Not very busy. Sometimes have a traveling art display in the main entrance. Good displays of the early water village settlement and progression of house development. A bit of history of Brunei revealed. Worth a visit if you are interested in the history.

Brunei is a very small country. So small and laid back that you feel like nothing can be done here. But being a country, of course there are still places that are worth a visit. Being a cheapskate self, I really love places which are free of charge. Well, who want to spend money when there are free things around,... More

So, with good history tracking, log, the next generation could learn the mistakes the previous generation has made. Coming to Malay Technology Museum in Brunei. The technology is a misleading word.

Excellent stop; doesn't take long and is very informative. Takes about 30 minutes to view everything (3 rooms of exhibits). Was perfect for children.
