Considering the MOller, Weinberg and Qadir-Sharif's definitions in general relativity, we find the momentum 4-vector of the closed universe based on the Bianchi-type metrics. The momentum 4-vector (due to matter plus fields) is found to be zero. This result supports the viewpoints of Albrow and Tryon and extends the previous works by Cooperstock-Israelit, Rosen, Johri et al., Banerjee-Sen and Vargas who investigated the problem of the energy in Friedmann-Robertson-Walker universe and SaltI-Havare who studied the problem of the energy-momentum of the viscous Kasner-type space-times.
