  • Very cool place to learn history, touch beautiful stones, see prehistoric creatures of Indonesia and the world. Beautiful huge crystals at display. Also many creatures's fossil to learn even humanoids. Some interactive display is also point of interest. Learn more about Indonesian history from this museum.
  • Very cheep entrance museum ticket (only Rp.2.000,-), you can see lot of fossils and amazing stone. You can also try how to stand in earthquake machine. If you won buy some stuff, you can find it on a store.
  • Kinda surprised with recent visit here, I can't tell if I was this excited since the last visit. The museum is more visitor friendly with their engaging interactive features, touch screens and simulation, though some of them was not functioning properly. Still need a lot of works here and there, until then this is a good place to go with children.
  • So many things we could see and all is interesting. Meeting very nice people in front. Great. Thanks.
  • This museum is big enough and there lots of artefacts inside. Ofc this museum can be a good choice for you who wants to learn and curious about the geological things in Indonesia. For everyone who doesnt understand about science i think you can just ask the educator there if you want to know more detail about the collection because just like me, sometimes the caption that already written there cant be really helpful if no one explain.

Where to stay in Bandung

Consider staying close to the main train station for simple hotel rooms at affordable prices--and some more expensive brand names--well positioned to explore the surrounding region. In the area surrounding Bandung Indah Plaza, find a cluster of more upscale hotels with comfortable-to-luxury quality rooms, close to the main attractions and key shopping streets. Look closer to the river for quirky boutique-style hotels, and throughout the city for standard guesthouses offering simple rooms at economical rates.
