  • Kesini karena nemenin teman daerah yg minta jalan2 keliling Jakarta. Karena bosan ngajak ke mall, tempat ini bisa jadi alternatif liburan dekat monas. Didepannya juga ada halte bus wisata tingkat Jakarta. Sayang kayaknya lg mau ada perbaikan jadi beberapa pameran didalam sedang dirawat atau dipindah (?) Entah. Spot foto juga lumayan banyak disini, pintar2 cari timing yg tepat agar foto ga bocor dengan pengunjung lagi. Tempat edukasi sejarah yg bagus bgt buat pelajar2 yg susah nyerap pelajaran hanya dengan membaca, ada bentuk visual dr benda2 yg ada di buku

  • Museum are great and this one is no different. Great collection of artifacts of previous dynasties and kingdoms. Nice collection of pottery and adornments. Four floors of relics for viewing pleasure. A must see if you're in the area.

  • A fascinating place to go if you like history. Gold collection on 4th floor is amazing. You could imagine how luxurious to be an aristocrats back then. How people live in the last century and more.

  • Suka banget sama museum ini. Walaupun saya tidak terlalu suka pelajaran sejarah saat sekolah, melihat koleksinya saja sudah sangat menyenangkan. Akhirnya bisa liat dengan mata kepala sendiri kejayaan kerajaan masa lampau, sejarah manusia purba dan fosilnya, prasasti, yupa, sampai karakteristik baju adat tiap daerah. Kebetulan saya htm nya free karena pakai voucher Ayo ke Museum dari Starbucks. Gedung baru ada 4 lantai dan yang paling magis adalah lantai 2 yang berisi banyak prasasti.

  • Banyak yang bilang musium gajah, sebenernya musium nasional Musium ini bersih dan terawat. Biaya masuk murah, kalo kesini enak saat weekdays, sepi. Paling ketemu anak sekolah yang lagi belajar sejarah. Banyak banget ilmu disini, cuma sayang dibeberapa tempat agak gelap. Beberapa peraturan dasar, htm dll. bisa dilihat difoto foto yang di post
