  • Museum ini terawat banget tempatnya dan indah sekali. kita jadi bisa membayangkan bagaimana suasana sekolah kedokteran jawa pada masa itu. Sekaligus tempat kelahiran organisasi pemuda pertama di indonesia. Area tamannya sejuk, banyak pepohonan yang asri dan bersih.. banyak diorama dan penjelasan yang sangat membantu dalam dwi bahasa (indonesia dan inggris). Waktu berkunjung ke sini saya dapat souvenir serta pamflet panduan museum. Berkeliling museum ini sangat menyenangkan. Di dalamnya juga ada fasilitas kantin, toilet, dan mushala yang bersih. Sangat mudah dijangkau dengan transportasi umum. Shelter busway terdekat adalah shelter kwitang.
