Tugu Pahlawan means Hero Monument. Since this is the landmark of Surabaya you might want to visit it. When we were there traffic was really bad. You definitely must take a taxi there, not only driving is a challenge but parking is next to impossible.

The weather is hot in the outside so I advise you to wear sun block because Surabaya is really hot. Inside the museum the facilities are not properly treated. However, is the right place to visit for Indonesia's history lover because it serves a lot of historical story.

Tugu Pahlawan is the icon of Surabaya, as it was constructed to commemorate the bloody battle of Surabaya which took place in 1945. However, upon my visit on this iconic place, I am truly surprised on the state of the whole premises. It is dirty, and doesn't seem to be properly maintained. The museum is quite confusing and uninteresting. The... More
