I like the atmosphere of this place. It felt so free by being there. Once we reached the top of the museum, we could see world around us from each corner. I like to see the ships around and wondered how it felt if I could go shipping one day around the world. We could even go on board on... More

You can see this beautiful statue if you take the passenger ferry from Madura to Surabaya.

Back when this statue was built, it was perceived as a future tourist destination and icon of Surabaya tourism.
