First visited the museum about 20 years ago, it looked interesting. The second visit a few months ago, the atmosphere in it looks much different. Placement of goods less attractive and less interactive with the visitors. When the young visitors are expected to visit this museum, there should be a lot more interesting information written on each item displayed.

People said that this is collections of international gifts for delegations for Soeharto (the Indonesia former and the longest serving President). The biggest gift (and the most lavish) is a bed carved with jade and other jewelry. Too bad the museum is dark and dusty. They should improve the lighting to makes the artifacts more dramatic.

This is the most distinctive museum in the world because all the unique displays were gifts from all over world to President Soeharto. All these gifts were displayed in a very unique and beautiful building in Jakarta. Each ornament resembles the super skills of craftmen of its country. There are a few gigantic crafts from tree roots which are most... More

The huge landscape itself is awesome, given the land price in the area. The collection is the best the country can have albeit a better curator may be needed. A simple yet affordable cafe should be set up in the midst of its garden providing a repose for visitors ( especially after touring this huge place )

The collections are amazing! From little miniatures unto enormous statues. From small jade figurines unto gigantic wooden ships and carved wood panels of Soeharto's childhood until precidency: this is one museum you have to go! But the handicap would be it's lack of information of museum directory and the access of the top floor are quite limited. But overall it's... More

This museum is commonly called the Suharto museum, as it was built to house all the gifts he was given when he was president of Indonesia. He was president for 32 years, and during that time he visited and was visited by every leader in the world, and each time lavish gifts were exchanged. I don't know what all the... More
