This museum will let you see some of the history of Brunei and the way of living. If I am correct it was donated by the Shell company.

Should be called the Heritage Museum! Situated on the Kota Batu road. Not very busy. Sometimes have a traveling art display in the main entrance. Good displays of the early water village settlement and progression of house development. A bit of history of Brunei revealed. Worth a visit if you are interested in the history.
