As a museum is OK and is well presented and we had a tour guide to ourself as was English which as good. The guide was great however they do rush you through, we went on Sunday before CNY so don't know if that made a difference or not. This was something we did as a filler however I would... More

Museum is not favourite tourism place in Indonesia, but in the Ullen Sentalu Museum is different with other museum in Indonesia. The concept of this museum nice, we will get new experience to get information about the history of Jogjakarta and Surakarta, which have strong culture and the center of java culture.

We have been there more than three times, and mostly with my spouse and family. We like it because we got whole stories of Mataram Kingdom of Java, both Surakarta and Yogyakarta, in one place. We are aware that supposedly there are so many kingdoms in Indonesia, but not many left and accessible to the public. Secondly, we got to... More

Ullen Sentalu is one of private museum in Indonesia. It is owned by personal which I assumed has relation to Yogyakarta Palace family (non government museum). The museum is located in the highland of Yogyakarta (Kaliurang km 25). Since it is in the highland, you should bring umbrella in case there is a sudden rain. The museum building is well... More

I love and love and love this museum. It's owned by the 4 kingdoms in central java (2 solo kingdom and 2 jojga kingdom). You can understand about the batik history and the meaning behind it. And they also will explain about the family tree of the 4 kingdom (and still reign till today). I can't say much about this,... More

I was so happy at this place. This is the greatest museum in Yogyakarta. The place is quite far from the downtown area, but totally worth it. I really enjoy my time in there. I was having lunch at the restaurant inside this museum. Quite expensive but the food was so delicious. I cannot stop my self to order a... More

Great place and the guides are so amusing. It's not like a boring museum, you will crave to explore the entire museum because they are telling stories about the family of the Surakarta sultanate.

Personally i think that this museum is the best that ive entered. the entrance fee itself is cheap according to the service that you get. you get a guide (you can choose the language of the guide between indonesia or english) and you get a special drink from them. you cant take picture inside, but i assure you that the...
