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 free and there’s not much else to visit in Brunei might be worth a look. You can’t take photos though.

It might not be the Technology museum that you have in mind :) it is a museum that is telling the story of people, who live in the water villages and what "technologies" they use for life. It is free and you can take photos inside. One hour is enough for a visit.

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.

Despite having quite low expectations this is a pretty good place to visit. Quite quaint but gives you a good idea of how people lived in Brunei both on the water and the land. Combine your visit with the Maritime museum- they are next to each other.

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.
