  • A friend of mine 'warned' me before that this museum is one of the best in her perspective but it lacks in the term of size. Eventhough the museum itself is quite small, we enjoyed the history-packed tour with qualified guide. Also, the fact that we can't take any pictures inside the museum is actually comforting. That way, we could fully relive the story of both Kasultanan and Kasunanan in Java during the tour.
  • this museum isn't maintained by the government, so i guess IDR 30.000 is still ok for the entrance ticket. we were guided by a guide (whose able to speak english too i believe) and she told us about the history and the entire story about their kingdom. history was really boring in school, but they actually delivered the story really well. even my little cousin could understand the story. i've been to this museum 3 times. i came there in january 2015 and the entrance ticket price was 25k. then i came back in september 2015 i guess and the entrance ticket was 30k because they built more (it wasn't ready yet). and i came back there in july 2016. they were still building it. so i guess you should come in few months, so you can get the best of it!
  • Second visit but still worth it :) friendly guide (will help you to take photos in certain places), nice atmosphere, and of course good place to learn about history. Best to be visited on workdays. Keep up the good work :D
  • The guides were really nice and the environment was also really beautiful. Clean, green, beautiful! I learned a lot of Javanese history, art, etc. There are also traditional dance classes here!
  • A great museum. Felt so mystical. You got a guide along the journey. A warm and nice atmosphere here.
