Brunei opens maritime museum in the capital

BRUNEI Tourism has announced the official launch of the Maritime Museum in Bandar Seri Begawan on March 23.

A project under the 10th National Development Plan, the 3.5ha museum located at Kota Batu near the river bank of Brunei is a repository for the country’s historical maritime artefacts and technologies from different eras.

There are three galleries: Brunei Ship Wreck Gallery, which displays artefacts from the Brunei Shipwreck discovered in 1997 and considered to be the most important discoveries in Brunei’s maritime history; Brunei Water Vessels Gallery, which focusses on the connection between Brunei people and the river; and Temporary Gallery, which showcases the history of trade and cultural exchange between China and Brunei from as early as 2,000 years ago.

The museum will be open to the public daily; Saturdays to Thursdays from 9.00 to 17.00, and on Fridays from 9.00 to 11.30, and 14.30 to 17.00.
