The Brunei Museum is situated several kilometres east of Bandar Seri Begawan, and purple bus numbers 11 and 39 pass by the museum ($1 Brunei dollars). This museum if free of charge, and contains several different galleries in a 2 storey building. These include a gallery on the natural flora and fauna of Brunei, oil refineries, Muslim art, cultural heritage etc. Photograph is not allowed and you need to put your camera into a locker just next to the information counter in the main hall as you enter the museum. Opening hours are:

Saturday to Thursday - 9.30am to 5pm
Friday - 9am to 11.30am, 2.30pm to 5pm

The Brunei Museum is located just next to the Brunei River and you can see excellent views of the landscape as you walk down to the Malay Technology Museum (located next to the Brunei Museum, down the hill). Due to time constraint, I did not visit the Malay Technology Museum but it is supposed to have exhibits devoted to the traditional lifestyles and artisans of the Malays. Admission is also free and the opening hours are about the same as above.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
