OGDC is an education centre for visitors (locals or tourists) to understand and appreciate the oil and gas industry which has been the strong supporter of Brunei Darussalam’s economy. Normally this area is also a jogging spot (from here to Billionth Barrel and vice versa) and has playground for kids. Not surprisingly, there is a Pokestop and Gym here which... More

I went here with my two small nephews as their father works in the industry. It's nice since they have good background information but also do a lot for the kids with interactive sciency games. We wanted to go for an hour but ended up staying for two. I would recommend it!

Where is the landmark carved buildings that once was at OGDC? 1 Pokestop and 1 Gym here. Great place for jogging, playing pokemon, family to spend time together and education to oil and gas production. Its got a jogging path from OGDC to Billionth Barrel. Its a great place to spend time with family and friends for leisure, workout;etc

Think the entrance fee is too high for the exhibition, the gadgets in the adjorning rooms were more for children than adults. I consider this wasted money. Also Brunei should also keep their monuments in order the millionth dollar varrel monument looks trashy

For its insignificant ticket fees, it's an amazing discovery centre for the kids and adults. Free roaming and the themes changes periodically. Get to know more about Brunei's Oil and Gas history and its association with Brunei Shell Petroleum.  There are IQ games. Do check out its website for the experiment schedules and demonstrations.  Can buy fish food to feed... More

This centre has a few permanent great exhibits and interactive activities for all ages. But it also has a few changing exhibits... so can be good to visit more than once if you are living nearby. It is very cheap to get in and you can spend 1 to 2 hours there easily while experimenting with all the science stuff.

I visited for something to do on a weekend and was disappointed. I have to say I did not really learn anything new. Kids may find it different!
