People who come to see the shadow of night wayankli foreign tourists in Japanese rates. Most is knowing the words of 2 hours duration, a shadow play gamelan playing and interesting at first, but got bored and to leave the room. Unavoidable during 10 to name a few but there at night concert is a shame, but some may be.

  • The collection is decent and the entrance fee is low. Plus there is air condition ! Very few people when we were there. Pleasant visit.  more »
  • The collection does not have some visible pieces at the Museum of Asian art in Singapore, but it is sufficiently diversified to have parts of interest. A comfort after the disappointment of the Kraton in front. Puppet show some nights.
