  • Great Javanese Historical Museum. The museum is private, calm & shady. They have two tickets u can choose, 100k/person & 50k/person. Ticket 50k include tour guide and 100k include tour guide & coffee break. The historical about Javanese Mataram, Yogyakarta & Surakarta culture. The historical tour was about 30-50 minutes. Inside museum you can't take a picture, so u can enjoy & focus the historical tour. But don't worry, there will be a spot photo outside at the end of the tour. Recommended!
  • Pretty cool museum! If you are interested in learning about Keraton Jogja and Solo, then this is the best place to learn about the history of it. Most of the item here is painting, clothing, and there’s not a lot of artifacts here. The main focus in this museum is the story of Keraton. You are not allowed to take any photos while on the tour.
  • The great Javanese Historical museum, You will be guided by a tour guide to go around the museum, they will explain the history of the ancient Mataram kingdom, the history of Javanese culture and some photos and other historical items. A good museum with an entrance price of 50 thousand rupiahs per person you get very useful knowledge. The air around the museum is cool and still beautiful, good ambience, I already came here twice
  • Kinda perfect place to fill your soul. A misty, quiet and calm. Ticket price is 50k/person including tour guide. And 100k/person including tour guide plus coffee break. Just choose the best one as you want! :) Better you bring an umbrella/rain coat in case sudden raining. But, you can’t take a picture while inside the museum so you can enjoy the historical tour especially about Yogyakarta and Surakarta’s palace.
  • We were having an absolute blast visiting this museum! If you love history, you will love this place. SUPER RECOMMENDED! Our guide for the day was Ms Juni, she is very good at explaining all the different things, and she brings good vibes. They should give her a raise haha 😉 😅 There are 2 kinds of tour. One was IDR 50k, the other was 100k. We went with the 100k tour. Our tour was about 40 to 60 minutes. The tour was about the Javanese Mataram history and culture and its ties with Chinese and Dutch culture. We also were given cookies and coffee and tea. Can't take pictures inside the museum. But don't be afraid, there will be a spot for a good photo session outside at the end of the tour. All and all we spent 2 hours at the place. The place was super large. You have to walk all the way because there were so many stairs. Not so disability-friendly.
