  • Here you could see the best quote from Soe Hok Gie and many lovely Dutch statues style in a dramatic pose. Good for photography hunting especially in black and white composition.  more »

  • You can find colonial tombstone/memorial dated from 1700s up until 1960s here as some of the corpses were already relocated to somewhere else. Most of them are the Dutch, but there are some American, British, and Chinese-Indonesian too. Some are really well-kept but expect to see many deteriorating sculpture/tombstones. Near the entrance they display the caskets of Bung Karno and Bung Hatta. Sadly they don't put information or story even on the prominent person's tombstone so if you don't understand Dutch at all it will be quite disappointing. It is quiet here but during midday the heat might be really intense and near the closing hour the mosquitoes will start to upset you. It is still a nice place if you want to escape from the noisy city and admire the work of art after all.
  • the museum is unique! a lot of dutch's-styled graves. it's not creepy at all.
  • you will need a guide to get the best out of your visit. unfortunately I'm not sure the guide can speak english.
  • The cemeteries and graves have stories behind it. Good place to take photos, and srudy about history
  • Old Dutch cemetery with many old graves, statues and monuments. Absolutely worth a visit, expect to stay here for an hour or two.
