  • The building is a magnificent colonial Netherlands sturdy and beautiful, with the location of the old city of Jakarta near JakartaKota Station and Museum of the Bank of Indonesia. The place is always crowded and clean is good enough.

  • Finally! It has improved! This museum has been so boring without less collection, no air conditioner and looks untreated. Now, it has more historic collections, the rooms are designed well, no more hot temperature inside the museum thanks to air conditioner. There are some signs on each area. The toilet is getting better as well. Kudos!
  • Ancient buildings full of history, you basically can learn the history of Jakarta here. Good place to tave some great pisc
  • Currently under major renovation that the 2nd floor and other section of the complex are not available for public viewing. Parking is a challenge during rush hours and weekends as the Kota Tua complex. Alternatives for parking space is at Jl. Cengkeh or at BNI office Complex adjacent to the Kota Tua complex..
  • It's just so hot to visit during daytime, but again, it's closed at night. If only they could add fans, at least, that'd be great. Great collection nonetheless.
  • Nice heritage place to visit. But it's too crowded at weekend. Parking is another problem in here. I suggest you to take public transportation such as commuter train or transjakarta bus if you wanna here.
