  • I went here with my friends for a school project. The entrance fee was Rp. 5,000 for adults. There are different parts of the museum. When you enter, there’s an outdoor space with many fascinating stones and statues! When you go deeper into the museum, the area is air-conditioned. There you get to see ancient artifacts and information about human development, especially in Indonesia. It was really interesting to see.
  • A pretty educating museum to visit. The exhibitions needs to be more well maintained, especially the statue park. The atmosphere also feels too gloomy for some reason, maybe because people rarely visit? It's a great place to go for school trip and family trip, given the admission fee is cheap (Rp 5,000) and it's easy to access.
