This exhibit highlights how Malays lived and thrived (and their technology) before contact with the first Europeans. Mostly serves as education for non Malays..

This museum highlight the housing and lifestyle of village life in Brunei. A very dated museum, but worth it if you have to kill time since the maritime museum is next door. It's a 16 Brunei dollar cab ride though.

Featuring displays of traditional Malay culture, village life, historic art and craft. To be called a technology is questionable, as it is really a cultural museum. The displays are realistic to depict early village life. No admission charge.

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.
