Good Museum

Some information I had learned in school but this place is right place to learn something in more fun way. I think this museum is on transition to become modern museum.

Museum is one of our "must go" spots for our daughter experience. And Geology Museum is certainly in our list. It is a good experience for initial visit to Museum. The area is explorable..and good to educate our daughter concerning earth.

Collection: Earthquake simulation, some relics from previous Merapi eruption, great collection but not vast (only 4 rooms utilized as a museum). Collection was spread on two floors in relatively small room, museum standard Parking: You can actually park your car at the back of the museum building and access the museum from the seemingly empty corridor from the rear complex....

This place serve people as a tourism object as well as base station for a few scientific things (for example: gravity station). Overall the building is an old classic one probablu built in colonial era. They have a collection of T-rex skeleton inside!!

we can see a lot of things that we never know before in here, especially for a history of earth and fossils. they had simulation area too, for the movement in earth elements like earthquake.. very fun for kids learning in here. but sometimes its very full visitors in one time, maybe needs more visitors management in here and improvement...

Dont miss this place when you visit Bandung. The museum is kept clean and the staff are very helpful. I was not able to find many English speaking staff, but that did not hinder me as I had a local guide with me.
