Brunei Museum    BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN,

The Brunei Museum is BSB's main cultural complex and is definitely worth a visit. The highlight is the Islamic Arts gallery, which displays beautiful ceramics, jewelry, silver, and weapons from the Islamic world. There are illuminated antique Korans from India, Iran, Egypt, and Turkey as well as stunning prayer mats. There is nothing to rival this collection outside of the Middle East. The Oil and Gas gallery offers a history of Brunei's modern wealth. Sponsored by Brunei Shell Petroleum, exhibits show the drilling of the first well in 1928 to current techniques and processes. The Muslim Life Gallery is an interesting display of artifacts from the cultural heritage of Brunei from prehistory to 1929. Exhibits include glimpses into social customs, musical instruments, and the history of the royal line. Visitors usually pair the trip with the Malay Technology Museum, located behind the Brunei Museum.
