  • Terletak di tepian sungai gajah wong, suasananya menarik, bisa untuk kongkow kongkow. Ada kafe nya... Cocok untuk menikmati minum sambil santai. 
  • Take a car or cab to get to the Affandi museum. It is a Gaudi-like place with the museum being a fluid styled building designed by the artist Affandi. Pay for a ticket (a bit steep by local estimates)...  more »
  • You can learn a lot about Affandi, the famous late Indonesian painter, by visiting this museum, which used to be his home. His style is abstract painting.

  • Unique museum featuring Affandi's paintings in 3 different galleries. Designed and built by the artist with himself and his wife's grave in the garden, it is a lasting legacy of his work and life. Interesting architecture and comfortable small cafĂ© to relax.
  • Affandi's Museum. Showing His paintings and art. Expresionist would love this place.
  • I went here on Sunday and sadly it was closed. For tourist attraction maybe it should consider to open on Sunday. Ok, for now, I just can say if it waa nice building from outside.
  • This place, I don't have any words to explain, so many memories can be seen and feel by looking at his paintings. I will never forget this place.
  • Bernostalgia ... bikin event disini ....
