  • A great place to see a wayang kulit performance. With a gamelan orchestra playing live. Not too crowded. And the ticket is only 20.000rp for a 1,5h show. Every night starting at 8pm, except for Sundays.
  • It is a good and well-known museum located in the middle of Jogjakarta. This place is such a great place to know about the royal family that live in Kraton. Then, another tourist attraction is the puppet show (wayang) in the evening. It is worthed to watch, especially for every tourist. This place is also easily find, located at the north of Alun-alun Kidul.
  • helpfull guide and loveable places
  • Interesting insights into the royal families of central Java. Lots to see; this is a working palace.
  • Please don't miss this beautiful place, the collection is truly amazing and they have puppet shows from time to time.
