Rather boring gallery for the tourist without specific interest in ancient history. But a good peek into the past civilisation and early man.

It depends. You can use bus or busway to Gambir train station. The location is just at the opposite of Gambir station. The easiest way is using Grab Car/Go Car/Uber or regular taxi . pls compare the price first. thank you
