Even though the website said it closed at 1.30pm, we got there just before 12 and it was closed. Kind of stupid considering Bandung is trying to get more tourists and this is one of the famous Museums to visit

The place was clean and well maintained. It was a bit small though, my little boy said 'only like this?'. However it's a good effort from the museum management and hope can raise the bar for other museum.

we went to this museum with little expectations - usually Museums in Indonesia aren't that well looked after. But this museum pleasantly surprised us. Quite a good collection of skeletons and fossils, and upstairs a good explanation of minerals, and natural occurrences such as earthquakes and tsunami. Kids particularly enjoyed the dinosaur skeletons. Not everything is explained in English properly... More

This is a good museum for school kids. There is good displays and presentations that offer the establishment very of Earth and life history. It is very inexpensive for entrance tickets; less than a dollar for foreigners. And almost all displays are in both Bahasa and in English.

It's a bit boring. The main attractions is the dinosaur exhibition on the 1st floor. Went there twice but the museum is closed. Went there for the 3rd time but it's crowded with school children.
