  • Maritime Museum and Lookout Tower (watch tower) is a set of facilities. Crossing the bridge from the back of the Kota square Cafe Batavia, (middle right hand watching the drawbridge, waste warehouses to walk along the river passes under the railway and Highway) walking to the North along the river down the drain and will arrive in about 10 minutes. Before the Art Museum and watchtowers. Will be asked to trip up watchtowers and buy tickets at the Museum. (It is a famous person wants to guide but not asking) come frequently involves the man hanging around in front of the watchtowers, so be careful. Museum is a museum than a museum. Voyage from the Outrigger with Oceania's seafaring vessels of the era, is exhibited to the port of Jakarta for the current system. Also, also occupied by Japan, features such as legend of the now and then East and West Sea, World War II naval battle diorama (sometimes also the Nordic Viking, etc.). Accuracy as verified in less academic, not eras as well as some places wrong. There are three buildings are air-conditioned, so you can watch gently. It seems even when the Open Café. Scrawny cats I look good in Jakarta has a lot here too, guy to slam the orange tiles combined with the background of the white building is photogenic. Can they recall the Nice ships and watchtowers to remain in port until the Jakarta walked along with the sea. Sea breeze passes do not air at once is refreshing. Coloring caught a taxi, so blatantly involved should find a taxi on the way back, waiting for a taxi on main street previous three-wheeled riding don't, such as passing the chip guards in watchtowers.

  • Nice museum which used to be a spice warehouse, built 1812. It displays nice typical boats from different regions, it also presents the famous sailors that came there to fix their boats at some point; it seems all famous navigators were there at some point, Cook, Vasco De Gama, Ibn Batuta... as well as local figures who fought off the Dutch to gain control of this strategic port. A selection of spices is also displayed. I was guided by Daniel aka Mr Teacher, which you can meet at place Taman Fatahillah on weekends. He also showed me the neighborhood, incl. historical buildings, the floating town next to the museum and the slum also next to it. He taught me that out of the 25 million inhabitants, 2.5live in sluls and another million under bridges
  • Nice museum that located on the Northern Jakarta. The building is classic. Here you can see the collection of traditional ships that have contribution in Indonesian history. Then you can find something about maritime and fossils that exist in the sea. You can visit the historic Menara Syahbandar in front of the way to the museum.
  • Cheap ticket, lot of ship miniature. But lighting was poor and no aircon
  • Admission fee Rp 5.000 per person. Open till 2 PM. Very interesting to visit.
  • Lots to see here regarding Indonesia's maritime history, although a little run down and very hot inside (no AC), still worth a look if you have an interest in all things maritime. Tour guides are available and all display signs for exhibits are in Bahasa Indonesia and English.
