Very nice displays on two levels of traditional Brunei culture, arts and crafts from woodworking to silver/goldsmiths, bronze, textiles, etc. showing traditional tools and culture.

Our guide brought us here and I'm glad for the experience. It is not technology, really, but rather the display of technology of the early people in the water villages. The dioramas and various exhibits show how the people survived off the land, and the...More

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.

The name of the museum is a little misleading, its nothing to do with IT, more the innovative ways early inhabitants use their environment to build hoses, gather food, make jewelry etc etc
