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.

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.

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.

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!
