If u an art deco lover u should come to here, 90% interior and exterior still in original structure. The landscape also great. But sometimes they have any wedding in there.

One would expect some sort of organisation or management because it's called a museum, but in fact the building is managed by ANRI (Indonesian Archives) and not by any Tourisme board explains the conditions a bit. You will be asked to fill in a guestbook and hand over some ID in exchange for a Visitor's badge. I was carrying my... More

Wonderfully restored building but not much too see. Also the traffic in the surrounding area is crazy!

In the weekend, this museum is more often used as place for wedding reception. In the noon there will be preparation made in the inner courtyard and close to the evening obviously it will be for peoples with invitation only. The museum also have a no-photograph rule unless you deal with the manager.

Jakarta can be a maddening city with its hot, sweaty weather and interminable traffic jams. Many travellers leave the city cursing the place and vowing never to return. But there are some historical relics to be found amongst the concrete and traffic fumes, and the National Archives Museum is one of the best. This building once housed the archives of... More
