I like the display of human evolution and some fossils of dinosaurs. The rest is just ok. If u don't understand Bahasa Indonesia, then you won't understand anything. My gf is a Indon so I have to keep asking her what is this and that.

Totally not worth a visit if you are a foreigner and do not understand bahasa as all of their explanatory board is only in Indonesian language. No English at all.

By far, this is our first trip to Museum in Indonesia and the best one. As parents, we were afraid the trip will bore our children. But, we were wrong!!! After paying a very cheap entry fee for 4 persons (only 20 thousand!!!), we discovered that the trip to museum was worth it. The display, the dinosaurs' bone, skeleton, etc.... More

Though it is mostly in Indonesian, it is actually one quiet interesting place. We actually touched those rocks and minerals, that allow us to interact with these volcanic stuff. And also i didn't expect to see an actual T-rex skeletons there! if only its more explained in English i would've enjoyed it so much
