If you planning to Kaliurang and not seeing Ullen Sentalu, you will be very sorry as they have good concept of museum in showing-teaching-and telling to the visitor Javanese history, philosophy and art from the very beginning until now day. This will give you new knowledge in learning how beautiful Java heritage :) The ticket fee includes free tour guide... More

Me & my partner went to this place with our private driver and before we enter there was an entrance fee of 30, 000 Rupiah that includes the English speaker tour guide. When we get inside the museum there's one tour guide to take us around the museum and explain everythings about the history of Keraton but the tour guide... More

This is the Keraton heritage museum, but runs by private foundation not Keraton. To get the tour, you have to IDR 30.000, and you will get a private guide with small group of other visitors (max. 13 pax) The tour guide will explain you all the things inside the museum. What I can tell you is, this museum has many... More

Situated on the foot of Mount Merapi, this was a fantastic stopover on our way down. Love the feel of it, how it was design to be a museum but feels more like you're walking through a beautiful house. It's hard to describe how different this place is to a conventional tourist attraction, Ullen Sentalu has that quiet charm about... More

This unique museum is like a guided maze through the history of the Kraton. The paintings, photographs and artifacts are of good quality and well maintained. The guide knowledgeable and explains in detail the theme of each room. I applaud that they don't allow to take photos, so no distractions in the group from the guides presentation. They have some...

There is a guided tour included in the entrance fee and they have very informative English speaking guides. The museum is very interesting, with many Batik, paintings and other interesting objects. The design of the house is great and any architect would really appreciate it. The admission price is quite steep, but it is a completely different museum to all... More
