I love the architecture, the vegetation and scenery here. The underground tunnel was interesting and the tour leaders are very informative. I love to see the architecture more than the content of the museum but it's for my own personal opinion. The café serves great coffee and panekoek, and has the best view. It really worth the entry fee, and... More

The best museum in Yogyakarta. Museum that provides historical story of Javanese, especially Keraton Yogyakarta. One guide should escort you while explaining some stories behind artifacts and pictures/paintings in the museum. One that should be known is, you can not take any photos in the museum, you can take photos only in the end of the escort.

A lot of stories about Javanese culture can be found in Ullen Sentanu. I guarantee that you will get a good impression about the service as well as about the culture of Java. Having a guided tour will... More
