Worth visiting for a snapshot of recent Javanese history. Very well set up for international visitors as entry includes a dedicated language specific guide. That said, it all felt a little rushed with the guide moving us from one room to the next quite quickly.

The somewhat remote location of the museum plays a large part of the charm of the place. The lushness of the surrounding makes the area very cool, and beautiful. The museum is partly funded by the royal family and a large part of the exhibits...More

This museum had a great architectural design. It's like walk through a hidden labyrinth in a forest. Although we can't take picture inside, but i can ensure you wouldn't regret. We can find huge Javanese collections from Kraton Jogja & Solo (Kingdom) inside, i.e. Gamelan,...More

The museum was neat and clean. We can visit there with one guide (by small group), she/he explained the whole area about in 30 minutes. However the museum was interesting for adult and children, one of the best museum in Indoneisa I think. Must visit!
