  • One of the biggest and best museums in Jakarta, for sure. Ticket price is only 5000 for locals. The collections are quite vast, from skeletons to jewelry. A must-visit!!

  • Great place to learn! Not only for children, but also grown ups! It's on a very easy access if you used the Trans Jakarta bus, or you can take the free bus from Plaza Indonesia. They have a marvellous collection!
