National Museum Of Indonesia, Jakarta Reviews
Beautifully designed and maintained building. Centrally located across from a busway stop. Good collections of national history. Lightings could be improved. More activities for school kids should be a routine agenda
Enjoyed our visit to the National Museum of Indonesia. The size of the museum is good. You can easily cover it in a few hours. The artifacts display the history of the country well and are very beautiful. Could use a little better lighting throughout the museum and on the exhibits. Make sure and take the lift to the 4th floor where the gold artifacts are presented.
Love the places. maybe the information section about history or anything on display make it little bit (or more) bigger and make it braille so everyone know what’s in there
The museum has a lot of interesting items from all over Indonesia. But I feel they could have taken a better care of the items and the presentation of it. But... it is definitely better than Jakarta History Museum (also known as Museum Fatahillah).
The place has a lot of historical artefacts specially on the 4th and 3rd floors. The museum consists of 2 sections. Old and new. In june of 2018 the old sections were being renovated. If you really want to see the museum allocate about 2.5 hours minimum to read and see each item in detail.
