National Museum Of Indonesia, Jakarta Reviews - Write a Review

  • The National Museum is the place where you can get your first time impression of the richness of the Indonesian cultures. Aside of the varieties of ethnic groups, you can also see the development of the nation. From the story of the Java Man and the dwarf from Flores to the rich gold culture of Indonesian archipelago. There is also a small but nice kid's corner where children can learn about traditional clothes, angklung, batik, etc.

  • Very cheap ticket, the building is lit bit old but spacious, and lots of things in clean and neat. Diorama too, we're in good condition and well designed. It's just like mix of history with modern art here. Good place to learn Indonesian diversity.

  • Very cheap ticket. They need to make more expensive ticket for such very valuable collection there. Good for kids and foreigner . It's under renovation right now and need to check interesting event on their website. I came when Spice trade exhibition is in.

  • after renovation, this museum became a place we can count as a place for hangout at the weekend. recommended for all of you to spent time here. seeit, feel it, enjoy it.

  • Museum was great and the English-speaking Tour was amazing (Thank You!) If you're English speaking, definitely try to get the tour. When we were there, it was 10am on a Saturday.
