    < 2017.08 > 謂 natural history museum is not now a generation of science and technology science and technology, Ying this history is over. Far City area natural history museum-Zaventem, 較 because traffic inconvenience, free participant view, anything to leave, but having photography. A/f to 藝 藝 displayed when the works of the art. Show exhibition area on the floor over to Timorese people's lives in the future, using a large number of models, this allows the participation on the view still 蠻 easier to understand.

    Approximately 40 minutes to stroll, because little range 圍, same time vitamin o does no good because many Construction release molds, so if not enough Userboxes/Time it right you can jump over.

    If u happen to be around the city might give this place a visit. Would not need more than 40mins to see everything. Think a cultural museum would better describe this museum.

    The museum is abit shielded from the main road thus you need togo through houses. Their exhibits demonstrates the local advancements and evolution of socio economy for the locals from transportation to lodgings. Very interesting and resourcefull

    The museum itself is a bit run down (due to climate, but also due to little attention to it). The learning is great. suggest going here before the water village to learn a lot about this part of Brunei's "above water" culture. Also has a gallery on the different ethnic groups and elements of their subsistence pre- and post-sultanate.
