  • Sonobudoyo museum is one that must be visited by tourists. The Museum is located near the Palace of Yogyakarta. Collections in it are associated with the collection of the Palace and kingdoms in ancient Java. There is always a ready guide to explain the content of the museum's collections. The Museum is nice made the people who want to learn the history of the Kingdom in Yogyakarta and surrounding areas.
