TROWULAN MUSEUM

One of Trowulan's central attractions is the new Archaeological Museum, to be found on the western side of Segaran pool. Officially opened in 1987, it was built for the purpose of displaying and preserving the ever-increasing number of historical treasures discovered in the vicinity of the old Majapahit capital.

Covering a spacious area of some 57,625 square meters, this new site accommodates the collection of the old Trowulan Museum, as well as the bulk of the stone sculpture, which used to be housed in the museum of Mojokerto. Among the objects on display, a few deserve special mention, notably the famous portrait statue of Airlangga as Wishnu on Garuda, from Belahan Temple; a winged figure which is said to portray the legendary king of Blambangan, Menak Jinggo; and a part of a temple from Ampelgading, Malang, displaying the story of Samodramanthana in finely carved relief.

Trowulan Museum is place to keep the ancient things of Mojopahit Kingdom. It is also a place study especially for the pupils and the students. Beside that it can also be functioned as the recreation place.

  • Great and well arranged museum supported by the location which part of ancient capital city
  • Great history place... Much better if there is a guide to tell the story
  • Storing objects the history of the kingdom in eastern Java from Airlangga kingdom until Mojopahit. Although close to the city of Surabaya but the visitors especially from young people is very few. Mojopahit is the largest Kingdom in Indonesia. And from the museum you can go to Candi Tikus, Candi Bajang Ratu, Candi Bentar, Candi Brahu and kolam Segaran, also you can go to Yoni Gambar in Wonosalam area
  • Ibundanya collection of antiques and historical items. Highly recommended!
  • The place that you can see the heritage of mojopahit kingdoms
