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

Often a museum is a place where everyone, the local, foreigners, old and young to learn about the past. Understanding the past always not an easy task. 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. If you... More

Spent around 90 mins taking a look around MALAY TECHNOLOGY MUSEUM on Sunday 10/07/16, caught the complementary transfer bus from my accommodation & return, having a limited time-frame for the return transfer I couldn't spend to much time inside the museum. Some interesting history to read especially on the upper top floors & again not having enough time to read... More

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.

The exenition is ok and gives you a good impression how life is in the water villages, and how life was in both Brunei and Sabah ages ago. There are some descriptions in english, but a lot of stuff without it. The building itself is ok, but somehow sad and the glory days are gone. But the worst thing is... More

I thought of skipping this museum from my itinerary but I was wrong! We can enjoy about the origin and culture of Brunei people back then. No entrace fee and parking is convenient.

We visited on a tour for about 30 minutes and it was well laid out with good descriptions. I wish we had more time to go a little slower but the way of life of different groups of people and how they lived over the water and in long houses was fascinating.

The museum itself is not so interesting in my personal opinion.. It's within walking distance with maritime museum. I accidentaly found the back door towards the river, and found this place awesome. If you love a quiet place, this is very suitable :)
