Yogyakarta Fortress Museum, Yogyakarta

3.2
Learn about the Indonesian independence movement by observing some 50 dioramas at Yogyakarta Fortress Museum, a converted Dutch-era fort. The colonial architecture makes an interesting diversion in itself, though the museum's content--which also includes slide shows, videos, and artifacts relating to the independence struggle--appeals more to Indonesian patriotism than historical scrutiny.

  • This Dutch colonial fort site is very interesting to see for its place in the city and the manner with which it allows to understand its development, but there's not much thing of the historic structure. The visit inside gives access to exhibitions on important moments in the Indonesian struggle against colonization, but it is more of a tour for schoolchildren than to a real Museum. Rest the walk is pretty, the low entry price, and that watching visitors to appropriate places is in itself a very rewarding show.
