The Satriamandala Museum is the main museum for the Indonesian Armed Forces.

It is the main military museum in Indonesia. The name Satria Mandala derives from Sanskrit and translates as "a sacred place for the knights". The museum is open to the general public and has archives for persons researching the history of the armed forces.HistoryAfter 1968, the head of the Indonesian Armed Forces' history branch, Nugroho Notosusanto, conceived of a modern museum showcasing the military's role in Indonesia's development; the available museums in the country, such as the Struggle Museum in Yogyakarta, were underfunded and had poorly defined mission statements. There was not yet a museum showing the united role of the military, only museums to the role of the Army, Navy, and Air Force. Notosusanto modeled his design after the Australian War Memorial in Canberra and the Museo Nacional de Historia in Mexico City, Mexico.

  • WOW - what a interesting experience. There is a lot of history here. I have been here twice now and each time I thoroughly enjoyed it. The aircraft section entertained me the most. The other areas give full history of Indonesia. It is really a good place to visit. try to star early as there is a lot to read and see.
  • Memorial museum for Jendral Soedirman and President Soekarno and also The soldiers of Indonesian freedom fighter. It's quite big and have unique Collections.

  • Wisata edukasi
  • - The ticket price is IDR 15.000 for 2 adults and 3 children. Based on the ticket should only IDR 9.500. - Many kids sneak in through the fences on the airplane area of museum from outside. - The upper level in one of the diorama is completely dark but no sign indicate it was close. - Air conditioner is not cool.
