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.

There are many reasons to come to Bandung. And if you are in Bandung, take the opportunity to visit the Afro-Asian Museum. The museum is in the same building where in 1955, April, Soekarno hosted 29 nations from Africa and Asia to create a group of 'Independent Countries'. In the museum you can find many pictures and other items which... More

The highlight of the museum is the original conference room of the Bandung conference of 1955. The exhibition on the Bandung conference has generally English translations but there was a special exhibition on Nelson Mandela (and the impact the Bandung conference had on the Apartheid regime) - which was all in Indonesian. It looked really interesting but I didn't understand... More

If you have nothing else to do, stop in to see walls filled with photos & descriptions of this conference held in Bandung. It was an important conference but the displays and minimal artifacts don't inspire you to find out more. It's closed from 12 to 1 when all the staff go to lunch. Located near the Savoy Hotel where... More

I recommend people visit this museum since it was the biggest conference held for Asian and African countries. I like the conference room and even it's small, it's compact. Some people often visit here in the middle of July, December, and in the beginning of January since it's a student holiday time.
