  • I wrote you that brought the Vice Guide to this site first. I caught in the Vice Guide at the wayang Museum in Japanese, come to the marine Museum square walk 15 minutes or so I'd like to. Through the streets like a journey coming to this place, dirty slums. I thought that the average person wouldn't come. Admission to the Museum is the 5000 rupiah. Museum of art itself is known by the exhibition, who was Jakarta's old name is a traditional boat in Indonesia and the East India Company in Batavia in appearance. Old Japan army occupation and, personally, it was interesting. After that, or show such as Slam, but to be honest, here was superfluous. Vice guide said this is another one of his. Fool the people will tell the difference between the rich and poor, but since it's a hefty guide price to charge what you like.... Be careful everyone. Neatly cut off.

  • Since I have the usual seen in Jakarta, I decided this time to this museum. Entrance costs Rp 5000, but, for a guide, which you certainly against going to come outside, you pay as "bulleh" Rp 75000. (Rp35000 for locals) I have to be able to negotiate and as a result, the price can get 50000 on Rp. (more than enough) The property is quite worth it, but, found the exhibition itself not so special. Am about 1 hour. Too bad, only that the tower was closed. My advice now would be: am going there if you have nothing better to do and certainly if you are alone, no guide. Because the latter is certainly not worth the money (even if ie Dutch). Location is a bit far away but from the stadhuys is running, if you are at least well to leg.

  • Being and island nation maritime museum is an interesting one. Fairly well preserved. Explore the past of Indonesia, dutch history, spice trade details, old boats and miniatures. Interesting for kids ...  more »

  • 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.
