  • As of today the *museum* is closed, reportedly due to the unresolved issue of succession: the last sultan died in 2015. The *palace* consists of two large rooms of artifacts open to view: royal portra...  more »
  • This is the best place to start a trip in Ternate. You can learn about the history of Ternate and his relationship with Portuguese, VOC and others. Unfortunately, the information inside is very limite...  more »
  • Before you visit the museum, don't imagine it will be the same as the Royal family let alone museums museu already managed by professionals like museum BI and other museums on the island of Java. To be honest, I think if you go to the history addict and just have a minute in Ternate, this location should not exist on top of your list. Yup it really need that extra touch. Because it is not styled and well managed, the museum is more like a living room containing ancient objects that are arranged blindly in a hurry. Maybe if there is no guide and labels description (actually scarcely visible) can I think most of the stuff in the museum as objects are out of date. How not, thick dust and spider nests can even easily you encounter in some collections. Fortunately we were accompanied by our guide who deftly. The history of the island of ternate and kesultanannya clearly told from the mouth of the tour guide. The Museum also seems to need promotion. the month seems to be only there are 6 visitors in the museum including the two of us. access the entry just ga clear, how willing crowd. Hopefully in the future local government more concerned on the management of the museum.

Where to stay in Ternate

As a relatively new tourist destination, Ternate's housing options are not too plentiful. There are a dozen or so reasonably priced hotels, guest rooms, and bed and breakfasts, but you may not be able to find some amenities, such as WiFi. Some spots do offer buffets, large, comfortable rooms, and even tour guide services--these can be useful, as tour guides are otherwise hard to come by in Ternate.
