  • 這是一個私宅活化成的私人博物館。外國人要先註冊,票價不貴,等待免費的解說員帶領。有能說英文的專業解說(不是那些城裡景點外面想討小費的)帶你走完全程,講述爪哇王國和君主家庭和前世今生,讓我了解了很多新的知識,還會請你喝一杯特色熱飲。樓上有餐廳和cafe。是整個旅程中感覺最舒服、最值得一來的地方。  more »

  • What makes this museum different with other museums you'll ever visit is the experience of exploring the museum in a group with a well spoken, extremely insightful and eloquent guide who will explain practically everything from the moment you step in to the entrance to the exit. You'll leave the museum with an immense amount of knowledge about the Yogyakarta and Solo Sultanates. Worth the 1-hour drive from Yogyakarta. Photo taking is not allowed at all. Hence, why you won't find photos of the museum's interior anywhere online.
  • This place gives you a great ambiance for those who love history, particularly aboutJavanese girl/family. The guides are so professional to explain so much details about the collections/items in this place. After the tour you will get a healthy, sweet and exotic herbal beverage to drink. Better to enjoy this place in a low season holiday. There is a gallery, restaurant/cafe and some open spots to be enjoyed. I do love this place!
  • The best museum in Indonesia, and have no wonder about it. Well managed, provide professional guides help you to understand their collections. We'll be back someday, 50 minutes is not enough though.
  • A lot of interesting information regarding the history of Yogyakarta and Solo. Incredible infrastructure and a very relaxing walk through the foliage of trees.. And the herbal drink at the end of the tour was a surprising treat! Wouldn't mind spending some time here...
  • The tour guides give very good explanation. Very good place for people to learn about the history and culture of the Javanese. Reasonable entrance fee.
