    Super nice collections and exhibition
    Located in the city Bogor (Kota bogor), This a must seen museum with best collections and good display. It is has skeletons and taxidermy of most animals that you may found in East Asia mainly in Indonesia. Also It is very big and most collection description are in Bahasa Indonesia but It is easy to understand animal as you can see it like it is live. The downside is that you are charged with the annexed forest which means not a lot to me. They are not allowing to choose museum or forest you have to pay for all. Museum cost 15000Rp during working days and 25000 Rp in weekend while for forest you have to pay 16500RP. General I was happy with museum exhibition.

    Museum inside Botanical Garden
    This Museum located inside Bogor Botanical Garden, not sure if we can enter directly from outside. Since the location inside the Garden, so we need to pay 2 entry tickets, Botanical Garden and Museum. Good place for educate our kids and understand the nature. We can see various animals collection in here, but it can be create more attractive with better story or explanation in each of collection so people can learn and understand more. After visiting this Museum we can enjoying the Botanical Garden.

    Museum Dengan Koleksi Satwa yang Beragam
    Di museum ini kita bisa melihat koleksi-koleksi hewan yang berasal dari Indonesia dan mancanegara. Salah satu koleksi yang terkenal adalah kerangka paus biru. Semua koleksi di sini sudah dalam bentuk hewan yang diawetkan, bukan hewan yang masih hidup. Lokasi tempat ini berada di area Kebun Raya Bogor, jadi kita bisa mengunjungi 2 tempat wisata sekaligus

The animals which was shown are very old and the museum was too antique until I think it's haunted by animal ghosts.

It is always an adventure to go to Kebun Raya Bogor and the ticket include the visit to legendary Zoolog museum. Lots of animals such as tiger, snakes, butterfly, zebra, fishes and many more. My favorite one is the huge big whale bones. Kids love them...

You need to see this when visit bogor. Enjoy!

Located inside Kebun Raya Bogor, this museum famous by its collection of blue whale skeleton. It's an educational museum, collections ranged from birds, mammals, reptiles, insects and fishes. However several maintenance might be needed, some area had dim lighting, and some infographic was broken. Entrance fee was free as part of Kebun Raya but had to pay Rp 2000 for toilet.

Been here with my family on June 2019. The last time I went here was probably 30 years ago. And it still the same. No improvement at all. The display and the condition of the building were so so bad and can not attract young people to come, see and learn.
Please help to make this museum back into shape as one of the most interesting museum in Indonesia

Located in Bogor Botanical Garden.
Got to firstly enter the Garden to finally reach the museum.
Tons of animal skeleton and dioramas of various birds, insects, and sea creatures... it's so educative... a good place to take your children to.
For me the best attarcation was the 25 m long complete Blue Whale skeleton discovered back in 194X.

For those of us who like Museums and other indoor attractions that share knowledge or information, sometimes maintenance or upkeep/update can be an issue in S.E Asia. This place was a welcome surprise considering prior expectations from other similar spots.
