  • Bagi pecinta seni & yg ingin meningkatkan sense of artnya, wajib mengunjungi museum dari salah satu seniman terbaik di Indonesia ini. Saya mengunjungi tempat ini ketika merasa lelah utk pergi wisata ke pantai atau Candi, namun tetap ingin jalan-jalan mumpung lagi di Jogja. Harga tiketnya tidak terlalu mahal, gratis minuman dingin, tour guidenya ramah, bisa nonton tentang kehidupan sang pelukis di mini theater, dan ada kursus singkat belajar menggambar atau melukis dihari-hari tertentu. Love it 👍
  • I LOVE THIS PLACE. I am a photographer myself and this place just so inspiring looking at another artists life, his works and his life pace. This is an art museum. There are paintings that considerably naked or exposing whole female body (Afansi's wife). Parental guidance is advised. The door guy knows what, so you shouldn't worry about asking everything you have in mind to him about the place.
  • A gem designed and built by Affandi, an Indonesian surrealist painter - often dubbed as Indonesia's Van Gogh. His body of work spans between paintings and sculptures. Consists of 4 major galleries and a cafeteria. He himself and his first wife is buried in he complex, beside the entrance of the first building. The ticket is relatively cheap, and cameras are allowed. The complex is very noticeable from Laksda Adisucipto street.
  • The ticket is only Rp 25k for domestic visitors (free soft drink after the end of the tour), Rp 10k for students. If you want to take pictures inside, pay Rp 10k for pocket camera, and Rp 20k for pro camera. There will be a guide who accompany us wandering the four studios of the museum. It was very informative for me.
  • A good place to know one of Indonesia maestros. I have to make a confession. I have been.libing in Yogya for more than 20 years but I visited this place just recently! I took my 9 yo daughter. Guess what, not only me, but my daughter enjoyed the museum and the collections there. Our guide was a very friendly young woman. She was veey detail with her explanation. This place is a must if you visit Yogya!
