“Only for the one who intrested in Indonesia 1950's History”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

This place is very significant to the pride of Bandung. The rest of non-block country like India, China, Yugoslavia, Egypt, Algeria were here. Unfortunately, this museum didn't offer the same atmosphere. The museum filled by the poster around, and only little artifact. The most disappointed thing is we couldn't enter the conference room. The building itself already have architectural charmed, plus going inside is free. If you don't have curiosity with the history there is not much to see inside.

“HISTORY RETOLD”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

A museum that retells the great story of the Asian-African Conference. Located at the exact building where the first conference was held. Enjoy a variety of explanations throughout the museum, and go to the audio visual room where they show a video of the historic event including videos, pictures, and voices of those who struggled for independence. Go to the main room where the event was held and sit on chairs that are still original. Catch the historian in the main room where he will explain a complete history of the Asian-African Conference. but beware, it may get kind of boring. Overall, this is a must visit place in Bandung, the location is in the center. don't miss it, and may history be retold once again.

“V shape building”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

This building has become famous landmark in Bandung, as this was the venue of Afro-Asian meet in 1955. This is just a building you can have a look from outside as Government offices are now run in this building. There is a museum portion open for public from 10 to 4. Take a photo and skip to other attractions.

“Strongly recommended historical place to visit when you are in Bandung”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

There are many reasons to come to Bandung. And if you are in Bandung, take the opportunity to visit the Afro-Asian Museum. The museum is in the same building where in 1955, April, Soekarno hosted 29 nations from Africa and Asia to create a group of 'Independent Countries'. In the museum you can find many pictures and other items which have been used and made during the conference. So quite an historical place. It tells also about the end of colonilism and the real freedom for these countries. The building itself is also very nice to have a look at. It is the old Dutch 'Schouwburg' Sociëteit Concordia in ArtDeco style from the beginning of the 20th century. Luckily the friendly people of Indonesia have conserved this building, like many others in Bandung of the Dutch period. Worth a visit.
