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).

A well-structured museum that tells a lot about the history, although it mainly uses the Indonesian language. It would be much better if it could add more English translations.

It must be said that most people will know nothing about the conference that earned Bandung and this building its obscure footnote in history, nor will they really care. However, there is a well organized exhibit with photos of the many but now mostly obscure or forgotten political leaders who attended the conference that might interest history buffs who were...

Time of visit: August 29th 2014, Friday 2pm ( 14.00 ).

Entrance: Free of charge. Situated... More

This is another one of the nice museums in Bandung. It still seemed like it was in renovation when I was there, but it offered a lot of interesting information to the historically minded.

This place is very significant to the pride of Bandung. The rest of non-block country like India, China, Yugoslavia, Egypt, Algeria were here. Unfortunately, this museum didn't offer the same atmosphere. The museum filled by the poster around, and only little artifact. The most disappointed thing is we couldn't enter the conference room. The building itself already have architectural charmed,... More

A museum that retells the great story of the Asian-African Conference. Located at the exact building where the first conference was held. Enjoy a variety of explanations throughout the museum, and go to the audio visual room where they show a video of the historic event including videos, pictures, and voices of those who struggled for independence. Go to the... More

This building has become famous landmark in Bandung, as this was the venue of Afro-Asian meet in 1955. This is just a building you can have a look from outside as Government offices are now run in this building. There is a museum portion open for public from 10 to 4. Take a photo and skip to other attractions.
