    I visited the museum in 2011 and 2015, and now i have the chance to visit the restaurant called Pronto Steak and Pasta. The museum is a pretty good place to explore and enhance your knowledge about art, and it offers free guide so you can understand each painting interpretations. While the restaurant has decent food that are served pretty quickly (so the guests dont have to wait long to enjoy their dish). The staffs on museum and restaurant are all helpful and nice, i love this place so much 😊

    Explore it yourself kind of museum, though if you ask, they could provide a tour guide to accompany you. The Affandi family's section is pretty awesome on its own.

    The tour guide is so good. There is three museum contain of painting of affandi which millenials doesn't know. So it's a good place to know him and his paintings.

    most of the knowledge here is about affandi himself, so it's a good place to visit if you wanna know more about him.
