“Interesting way to learn history!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

This museum is very interesting both for children and adults. They showed the history of Malang in atractive way with a lot of things that you can try like making pottery, experience the life of the prisoners and colouring traditional masks. It's worth the visit :)

“Great museum with things to do.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

This is e new (private) museum which gives an overview of Indonesia's / malang's history from prehistoric to modern times takeing you through the Hindu past, the Sultanate, the Dutch period (and their town-planning efforts), the Japanese occupation, the liberation struggle and president Sukarno. The exhibition is, contrary to many other museums in Indonesia, very interactive with things to for kids (and parents). The owner is often there to give you advice (not much English unfortunately). Little shop with nice things to buy and an excellent restaurant. Go there. it's worth it.

“must visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

This museum is located in Malang city center, not far from the Alum-alun and displays Malang history from its pre-historical era. It looks pretty small from the outside but once you get inside actually have a lot to offer. Guide is really friendly and informative. I don't know maybe because we have an 8-yo with us so the guide explains all these history in a really fun way, with games etc. Entrance fee includes painting workshop and they let you take pictures. Whoever is behind this museum set-up is bringing something new to the city. Excellent :)
