  • Only visited for a view minute. I didn't know i have to bring book or donate 50k to enter. But it look very nice from outside. Small parking place though
  • Its nice when you only take picture from outside :)
  • indonesia's first literary museum - inspired by author andrea hirata. great for instagram, but a bit out of the way
  • Below expectations, the place is beautiful if all you wanted to do is to snap beautiful pictures. The museum doesn't really give you a new knowledge about literature and its mostly just a house with several first edition books, vintage stuff that you can find at any stores, and inspirational quotes from famous literatures. As a bibliophile, this place is good but not worth the price. The entrance fee is IDR 50K (which is overrated in my opinion) and you'll get a pocket book of Andrea Hirata's most famous tetralogy, Laskar Pelangi. Sadly the pocket book is only in Indonesian and apparently its just an excerpt of a story inside the novel that I already owned. Pretty much disappointing especially since I was really excited about it.
  • its okey, you dont need to go here if you dont like the Andrea Hirata book, since it specific for book lovers. nice place to take foto
