  • It is very interesting because it is a historic relic during colonialism. Inside the museum are stored various kinds of objects as a witness of the history of the era of colonialism as well as pre-colonialism in Central Jakarta. The price of the entrance ticket to the museum are also very affordable for the community.

  • It has been renovated and looks modern. All rooms are fully air-conditioned. Here, you can learn the history of Jakarta. Some relics are still authentic. However, the souvenir shop looks a mess and has no concept. It's better to have unique mascot or icon for this museum rather than sell anything from all over Indonesia.
  • Museum ini adalah spot favourit para pengunjung kota Tua. Bila ingin nyaman menikmati koleksi yang ada di Museum ini datanglah pada hari kerja karena suasana sangat lengang. Harga tiket untuk dewasa Rp5000 sedangkan untuk anak-anak dan pelajar Rp2000. Menjelajah kota tua bisa dimulai dari museum ini. Gedung yang saat ini menjadi Museum Sejarah Jakarta menyimpan berbagai bercerita tentang peristiwa penuh warna baik cerita suka maupun sejarah gelap kota Jakarta dari masa ke masa. Pada zaman penjajahan Belanda, Museum Sejarah Jakarta adalah balai kota Batavia yang merupakan pusat aktivitas rakyat pada abad ke 17-19. Di halamannya terdapat tempat air bersih yang setiap sore menjadi tempat rakyat berkumpul mengambil air bersih dari satu-satunya mata air di halaman depan balai kota, ada pula trem yang berjalan dengan rel di depan balai kota. Selain aktivitas tersebut, balai kota juga memiliki fungsi lain, yakni sebagai tempat pelaksanaan hukuman mati dan pembantaian masal. Di museum ini terdapat fasilitas mushola, kantin dan toilet. Untuk rombongan tersedia pemandu yang menjelaskan berbagai koleksi yang ada di museum ini.
  • The representation of the museum is nice. Information are well explained in object's caption. The building are beautifully preserved. Minus one star because there are no staffs museum supervising the exhibition objects, many visitor touch even open the 300 years old cabinet. That foolish inlander
  • #LetsGuide This place is one of historical place in Jakarta and we can feel the moment there. A lil bit creepy but yeah it will be happen if you are visiting museum. Have a local guide who will tell you for the stories but overall that was a such good historical place that we need to visit.
  • Good history museum. They have a big space inside the museum in which use for some special event. Instagramable inside and really good historical object.
