Visitors to museums in Asia should always have realistic expectations and that's true with this museum plus it tends to only interest those who have an interest in geology or rather the geology of Indonesia. Also and if I recall correctly, roughly half the museum was closed at the time I visited (circa Oct 2013) for remodeling and refurbishment of... More

There are not so much informations in English. They should consider this since there are quite a number of foreign visitors in the museum. There are a lot of rocks, minerals, fossils collection in the museum. Some of the infos pasted on the wall are really beneficial for a basic geology knowledge for the visitors. Even an earthquake simulator can... More

The museum is rather wore out but it may be fine for young local visitors. When the museum was crowded and in the weekend it is a challenge to find parking lot and enjoy the visit.

I don't think that it is the great museum. The museum is so dark and scarying. If you want to take pictures, you really need flash light. No guide offered museum tour. Some rooms were locked. It was because of the building renovation. You'll see a lot of collection in this museum. Such as rock, timber, human, animal, etc. However,... More

Especially my 8th years old son, he's very excited with the T rex bones. and all of the history of human. But it must add more light to the museum. The entrance... More

Me and my family visit this museum. I've been here couple times but for my little brother it's his first time. So he really exited to visit and look around. The most fascinating is, T-REX! It's really big and looks scary. I wonder if I lived in Dinosaur Era :)) In this museum, have a lot of history about geology... More

I have been to many museums in Indonesia and have been pretty disappointed by all of them -mainly because of the lack of care in all of them. The geology museum was quite nice however. It was well kept, had clear information about its items, and had many interactive displays. Definitely should stop here if you're spending a few days... More
