Yogyakarta Fortress Museum, Yogyakarta
(3/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange your visit to Yogyakarta Fortress Museum and discover more family-friendly attractions in Yogyakarta using our Yogyakarta trip itinerary builder.
