Malay Technology Museum

Museum in Bandar Seri Begawan

This absorbing museum focuses on the traditional lifestyle and artisanship of Brunei's ethnic groups. Peek into the bamboo dwellings of a re-created Malay water village, peer into a Murut longhouse with weaponry on the walls, and observe the blowpipe-making technique of the nomadic Penan. Learn about traditional livelihoods, from fishing and farming to trampling sago pith and boat making, and explore the crafts still practised in Brunei's water villages, from silversmithing and goldsmithing to weaving fine cloth.
