    A very great place for family gathering! The place is very wide with museum, park, benches, many plants & even vintage cars! It's getting really hot during the noon so come here during the early morning is really great.

    Got this great monument in the morning 6.30. it was nice to be here. I found that there are two new statues of country proclamators in the front gate, covering front pillars. Some locals excercise and jogging around centerfield. After 7, crowd start coming plus some student do their sport class at the field. Canteen is available behind museum exit, at east are, provides Nasi pecel and and soto. It's ok and cheap
