    Banyak hal yang bisa kita pelajari di tempat ini. Sejarah Indonesia diukir dan diabadikan di Museum ini. Bagus untuk mengajak anak anak tamasya sambil belajar bersama.  more »

    In this place there are various relics of the war era of independence of the Republic of Indonesia. This place is also one of the spooky places in Night Town. There is one train carriage called the "Death Car" (indonesia: Gerbong Maut). This story occurred on November 23, 1947. At that time, although Indonesia was independent, the Netherlands still has not left the archipelago. Prior to the incident, the Dutch made extensive arrests against the Army of the Republic of Indonesia (Tentara Rakyat Indonesia), paramilitary, underground movement, and people regardless of their role or not in the struggle. This resulted in a full Bondowoso Prison and could no longer accommodate the prisoners. The Netherlands also moved about 100 prisoners who were deemed to have serious offenses, from Bondowoso city prison to Surabaya town prison. The transfer of prisoners is done by train. The first carriages of the GR5769 with 28 people and the second carriage of GR4416 with 34 still have air vents even though they are very small, but the third carriage GR10152 with 38 people is not at all - albeit freshly made. The Dutch are closing tightly on train cars. This is because the raging guerrillas of Indonesia, if there are people who caught bringing the fighters of RI, will be directly killed. During the trip to Bondowoso from Surabaya which took a dozen hours, the three train cars only opened occasionally. That too briefly. The prisoners were also given no food and drink during the trip. Therefore, the prisoners suffocated one by one. Arriving in Bondowoso, as many as 46 fighters died from suffocation did not get food and drink, heat, and enough air. While the rest survived, although in a state of weakness and limp. The surviving prisoners were forced to carry the dead. They had to be careful because it could have been the skin of the prisoner who had died, exhausted, and roasted in a railway steel carriage.
