  • Good local museum, good to learn about Java History, good collection to view and learn more about java culture
  • Great museum with English descriptions so guide not essential if you are tired of listening. Well laid out and interesting. Seats as well for resting. Concert in evening was wonderful and recommended. Puppet maker attached very friendly.
  • Wayang kulit show is amazing and deserves attention. The artists are amazing, meet the craftsmen making the shadow puppets
  • Beautiful collection with great guide. Definitely worth visiting.
  • It's a nice place to visit and you can experience the history of Indonesia and it's culture
