Fantastic museum with lots of prehistoric items like T-Rex and other ancient living fossils. Too bad no guides available. Also closed by 3 pm during their month long fasting month. No notice at all. Tickets for tourist more expensive !! Rupiah 10k.

We went to this museum because it was raining all day. Surprisingly, the museum is really good. The collection of fossil and rocks keep my kids busy for more than 2 hours. They also learn about history of earth and galaxy. I highly recommend it.

This museum does not have many exhibits, but what it has on display is interesting and educational. On the first level, it houses a room on geology, and explains in simple terms volcanoes, various rock formations, and rocks, crystals, stalactite & stalagmite displays, etc. It also has a room that shows the skeletons of a T-Rex and a mammoth, as...

This is a short visit during the school holiday, Pretty crowded. You need to pay Rp.5000,- for the entrance ticket. The place is quite interesting though. You can see the dinosaur skeleton, some collection of stone and minerals, and some interactive too. Nice experience for kids and family in Bandung area.

It's a museum, I know, but while it displays things of the past, doesn't mean that it has to be outdated-looking too. I mean, the collections are wonderful; even for someone who knows next to nothing about geology and is only slightly interested to know more about anything geological like me. It's a recommended visit while you're in Bandung, yes,... More

Try to go during weekday because weekend is very crowded and hardly enjoy to visit the place. I don't really find it interesting to visit but maybe the kids will love it.
