Museum of The Asian-African Conference, Bandung

(4/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Learn about one of Indonesia's earliest foreign policy achievements at Museum of The Asian-African Conference. The museum celebrates and records the history of the 1955 Bandung Conference, also known as the first Asian-African Conference. Leaders from 29 countries, many of whom had recently gained independence, gathered to promote Afro-Asian economic and cultural cooperation, and to oppose colonialism or neocolonialism by any nation. The museum presents a somewhat sanitized version of events, glossing over the various human rights abuses of many of the participants, but the archive footage, correspondence, and Art Deco architecture make for a interesting diversion. Make Museum of The Asian-African Conference a centerpiece of your Bandung vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bandung itinerary maker.
