We walked to the centre. We purchased some lovely weaved goods. There was a variety of products at reasonable prices. The staff were helpful.

Not very impressive - like an airport gift shop, but with much less variety.

Very expensive products, not representative of local handcrafts at all.

Great to see the local crafts which are also for sale but the display/goods for sale are not that extensive. Some have said they are relatively expensive, but I can't comment on that

Due to renovations the attraction was closed. BEWARE, the map is very misleading and indicates the Centre is on your left when heading out from BSB Downtown when in fact it's on your right. You can't really miss it but due to poor signage and bad map indication we drove past it three times without realising that we had.

Hopefully Brunei will start to foster the creativeness of the country. Arts and Handcrafts Centre is a good start. Items are however substantially priced.
