  • My son always asks to stopby to this Geological Museum on every trip to Bandung. The display is probably above-average for a museum in Indo. The earthquake simulation machine on second floor always in-repair every time of our visits. However, on our recent visit in June 2017, it looked like the souvenir store had been upgraded to a much nicer store and addition of photo booth with dinosaur (25k per picture) and very friendly staffs. We hope the museum keeps upgrading and including many simulation/simulators and interactive displays for kids learning. Two thumbs up for the recent upgrade on the souvenir store and the photo booth.
  • The entrance ticket fee is cheap. Only 3000 for adult. The place is well maintained. Interesting to learn about earth science - geology
  • A museum transitioning to a more modern, hands-on style. Worst thing is that there is very little translation into English. But thoroughly scientific, no beating around the bush about evolution here. Interesting exhibits regarding hominid discoveries in Java. A mild earthquake simulator.
  • It's not just a museum. Everything here can change our perspective about life. Try to bring your kids here so that they can see how interesting science is.
  • The collections are interesting but they really need to work on the visiting hours for big groups because it can be too crowded sometimes. And they really should put some of the collections in glass boxes because I saw so many people can freely touch the exibits
