Good Educational Historical Place
Dec 2019
Comfy museum with AC, and centrally located, within walking distance from our hotel. Very historical yet attractive to the millennial kids. The tricky part was the lunch break, we were ushered to the other room during its 1 hour closing period. Basically we enjoyed our short visit there.

A slice of modern Asian African history
Dec 2019 • Couples
Didn't think I would be interested in a museum dedicated to a conference held in 1955 for Asian and African heads of state. I became fascinated with the story of this conference -- how and why it was held and the resulting outcomes. The displays combine images and text to tell the story of newly independent countries coming together to face the threat of the Cold War and how to develop after throwing off colonialism. Then as we walked around the Bandung, we related the buildings to the 1955 history. I'm so glad we went in. The Conference Centre itself has intriguing architecture.
The student study groups all stopped to talk with us and take pictures.

A piece of history

The museum is well presented and honours the importance of the conference. Google about it and then visit the site. Take in the significance of their efforts when you are there and reflect on those Cold War years and what the conference attempted to do.

Excellent museum
Nov 2019
This museum is brilliant. Very well presented, splendid artefacts from the conference itself, very realistic waxwork mannequins of some of the participants. Many helpful English signs to tell the story of the conference in an international context. The conference hall itself is magnificent and this is a great building from the late colonial period (think art deco in the grand style). I congratulate all involved in presenting this exhibition. it is world class. the only bad thing is the companion book i received - the english version was pretty poorly translated and in one respect contained a factual error (china was never formally part of any european empire, though it was in the shadow of the western powers.) however, the most remarkable thing is that this museum is actually free to enter. well played, sirs!

The museums was located in the city of Bandung, situated on Asia Afrika Street No. 65. This museum is a memorabilia of the Asian-African Conference. This museum has a very close relationship with Gedung Merdeka. Overall Merdeka Building has two main buildings, the first is called Gedung Merdeka as the main meeting place, while next to Gedung Merdeka is the Museum of the Asian-African Conference as a memorabilia for the Asian-African Conference.

A worth to visit museum, especially for generation who was born at the end of the 1990-2000 era. This museum will provided you with documentation of the Asia-Africa Nation Conference held in Bandung 18-24 April 1955.

During my visit there were some parts of the Museum being renovated, so generally the Museum can be divided to 4 parts.

1. Main Entrance. Enter from Asia-Africa Street, you will directly enter the Main Display Hall. It will provided you with documentation from the conference in form of news article copies, photos, voice recording, computer based informational database, to go out go to the north right corner
2. The Hallway. In this short hallway their will be billboards explaining Indonesian roles in worldwide politics nowadays.
3. The Assembly Hall. The original assembly hall used during the Conference.
4. Exit Room + Souvenir Store.

Museum of Great Historical Importance
May 2019 • Family
The museum is located in the heart of the city along busy Jalan Asia Afrika and is one of the most important buildings in the city, not just for it's art-deco architecture but also for the Asian-African Conference that was held in 1955 and where so many world leaders attended. In fact, many colonial and art-deco buildings exist in this area so it is great as a place to explore some history.

The museum is free to enter and is more interesting for adults and students than for children. There are some nice displays and a lot of information and photographs on display giving details about those who attended the conference and a history of it. Staff are on hand to provide information should you require it.

After the main museum area one passes the museum library which houses lots of books, articles, newspaper cuttings and children's books relating to Bandung and the conference. Here you can sit and read books in order to learn more about the history of Bandung and all about the Asia-Afrika Conference.

The grand hall is very impressive and very well maintained. Here you will see the seats that the world leaders used along with the line of flags for the countries that attended the conference. The beautiful art-deco style of this hall is impressive.

Just before exiting the museum there is a small gift store where you can purchase T-shirts, magnets, caps, books, plates, mugs and other souvenirs.
