National Museum Of Indonesia, Jakarta Reviews

  • if you want to know more about Indonesia, there is a lot to see in this museum about Indonesian culture and history. is most complete museum with the beautiful collection of artifact, jewelry and statues. had some really nice interactions with school children who were touring the museum.

  • One of the buildings is in renovation so we didn't see the full museum. But we thoroughly enjoyed the exhibits that were available. And lucked into a lovely concert by a Gamelan orchestra, a bonus.

  • The name doesn't fit its title. This museum is located near National Monument, you can cross to this museum if you visit National Museum. The access is easy to reach by busway or online transportation. The entrance fee is cheap. In the basement, you will find the ancient human in Indonesia. In the 2nd floor, they provide with jewelry collection across Indonesia. In the 3rd floor, you will find national treasure. Not so much you can explore in this museum, but the overall ambiance is comfort and nice.

  • A historical place to learn history of Indonesian Culture. It has new wings, as the old building is under renovation now. A must see place. Located next to National Monument. Easy to access with TransJakarta / public transport. English speaking tour guide is available.

  • They have this basement hall which up to 200 people for seminar, training or workshop. A lot of cultural activity such as traditional dance rehearsal in lobby or some traditional music rehearsal. It's good experience to enrich your experience about Indonesia's culture.
