I visited Gedung Merdeka/Museum KAA on Februari 14 2015, as my youngest has his extra curricular activities in film making in the property. This historic building first used as a impressive club of its time known as Societat Concordia (hope I write it correctly). Then, on 1955, its used as the place for first Asia-Africa Conference, which later become a... More

This museum is just ok. The photos are interesting, but the scope is quite narrow, being confined to just one specific event.

I visited this museum just once with family. It was situated in a nice old building but it took only about 20 minutes to visit and see most of it. Nice to see some old photos but not all that interesting.

If you are interested in post colonial history, this would be a great place to visit. Very well preserved building along with the historic meetings of the early 60s

The conference room is mantained to be like it was in the 1955. Nothing's changed there. So, you can play freely with your imagination to feel the atmosphere of Asian-African Conference. I suggest you to read about the background stories in the exhibition room before you enter the main hall. On the weekend, there are lots of activities there. There's... More

I often make a visit here to bring guests. The atmosphere, cleanliness and information was very easy to obtain because tourists will be accompanied by competent interpreters in the field. In addition, tourists can watch movies megenai history museum. Highly recommended for tourists who love history.

This building is one of many historical sites in Bandung. It could be a hit if it gets maintained, packaged and promoted properly. I visited it when I was invited in a conference held inside. I have no idea how to enter and what to enjoy if I am just a passerby tourist (not being invited).
