Malay Technology Museum information
Contrary to its misleading name, this museum focuses not on modern technology but on the traditional lifestyles and practices of Brunei's ethnic groups. The somewhat outdated displays on life in a Malay water village (stilt architecture, boat making, fishing techniques, handicrafts) and a Murut (Lun Bawang) longhouse have a certain charm to them. The 39 bus passes along Jln Kota Batu, from where the museum is a five-minute walk down the hill.
