    unfortunately can't see what inside this museum because it's already close when I came. But my friends say that it's an interesting museum. But it look colorful from outside make visitor want to know what's inside

    It is a private collection of Andrea Hirata with the interior design looks like a common living house. The museum was divided into some pavilions: 1) Main Entrance have: guest room with pictures of kids actors Laskar Pelangi, reading room, kitchen (there was a small cafe with an old design, called: Kupi Kuli), 2) A small library 3) Playground 4) backyard. It was satisfied to see the phrases collection and did a short reflections about our life.

    Good place if you know Andrea Hirata's work. But if not it's a bit overrated I think.
