  • 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 ....
