A great place to visit to get a snapshot of the Indonesian revolution after World War 2 and a history of their heroes. The staff, who speak English, were excellent and were able to give a detailed account of each exhibit in the Museum.

It's a point of reference. A marker for the heroes who died for the country. Inside the compound consists of other point of interest like the 10th Nov museum.
