    For the first time visit, it's COOL! A unique concept of java combine cultured mixed with a good collections of sculpture, not only getting knowledge but you'll enjoy this place as it's like a mixed outdoor-indoor museum concept. The guide is friendly, explain kindly and give us a traditional drink at the end of the session..so worthy to spend time here, suggestion: come early in the morning cause it's bit crowded there. It closed at 4pm. One more thing: Taking photos inside the museum collections is prohibited. So, take a deep look of those. hihi

    Each and every visit will give you a unique experience as you experience this 50 minute guided tour around the museum. The museum is also heavily influenced by both traditional Javanese and modern architecture, dropping your jaw on every corner of the place. Although taking photos and recording videos aren't allowed inside the museum, this will not reduce the experience of your visit.

    Really nice museum... I went there long time ago,.. and now it is being renovated, especially in the front.. Supposed to be more strict n clearer on no camera policy, meaning people can take picture but NO flash, by imposing deposit before entering the museum; and if people break the rule, the deposit will be gone and the camera will be seized till outside

    We will get 60-90 minutes interactive guided tour, with the awesome tour guide that explaines us about the history and culture in the museum. Taking photo in most of areas is forbidden. And so strict about this, if they found you take the picture, the guide will be take your phone or camera and delete the photo. But, at the end of the tour, you can take some photos outdor and at the restaurant. So far, great place, awesome design with good management.

    Wonderful private owned museum, collection of Mataram Kingdom heritage like Keris, and etc. The very nice location is perfect for weekend getaway. Restaurant is perfect for cozy meal or just relaxing. Worth visit. But just be there before afternoon since the tour takes 2 hours inside, and ticket box closes at 3.
