Must visit for kids, with good collection of Indonesian's Military History. The sad things is the neglect from government to provide necessary funding for this museum. The fee is too cheap. Rp. 2,500. for kids, bring your schoolmates and friends, the weapon collections was good although not great. Recommended for a family or school activities.

Many useful information about the war during the occupation which helped parents to teach kids to be proud of being Indonesian. the toilets were poor and praying... More

Located downtown and open during weekends certainly makes this museum very easy to visit. It is closed on Mondays, though. Kids (especially little boys) would love it because they get to see all kind of weapons, old tanks, planes and chopper, and even a ship up close. They have splendid collections from the wartime and extensive dioramas. It used to... More

This place certainly gives you a lot of useful information about Army and Military and their amenities. They have rooms for every section. Most of the visitors here are school kids.

Good place for outdoor pictures with post war aircrafts. The museum is not bad but it needs renovation . It gives you the feeling that it's abandoned

Lots of very interesting exhibits, though the curating level is really poor and seems like the people are not keen in actually preserving these military hardware and just displaying them out in the elements expecting people to come in. Still, being a military buff, I do hope they would put in some effort to beautify the place and accord some... More

Went there as just about my only tourist destination during a short visit to Jakarta. I have a great interest in military hardware so this place surprised me with the amount of aircraft, unusual armoured vehicles, and a good collection of small arms. However, it does look like the curating of the collection and updating stopped just after the Museum... More

I enjoy my visit here . The museum is centrally located and has a good collection of armaments, including aircrafts / choppers used by the Indonesian armed forces. The diorama provides excellent information as to how Indonesia had to earn its independence
