Indonesia has the enviable position of having some of the most ancient human remains in the world. Who wouldn't want to see a 700,000 year old pre-human skull? I don't think the National Museum wants anyone to see it as they have it displayed in a knee level cabinet with poor lighting. I'm glad that I was specifically looking for it, otherwise it would have gone unnoticed.

The National Museum is worth a visit and provides an interesting view into Indonesian history and especially the way Indonesia sees itself.
There are English language panels throughout the museum.

If you like to see and know about ancient Indonesia, it is a good place to be visited. It is advisable to stroll the museum with the guide. Museum's employee would be your guide and sometimes there are some volunteers.
Please check the day and the time.
Across National Museum, there is National Monument (Monas), it is a good idea, for guests who comes to Jakarta, to visit these places at the same time.
In case you like to know more about Jakarta old history, why not visit Jakarta Museum, at Taman Fatahillah, at Nothern part Jakarta. You can visit this museum using trans-Jakarta bus, which has a bus shelter situated across the National Museum. The bus will drive you directly to Jakarta Museum.

There are varieties of tablets and artifacts to actually see here, the place is quiet some size too! There are great displays of exotic statues and golden artifacts which were pretty interesting, the museum is also quiet informative in terms of everything they put on display. If you like history and museum you musn't miss this one! you'll spend hours here!

National Mesum is mix between history and religion . They dont only display historic item but also marvelous statue . You can see a lot of Buhhda stuatue as well as Hindu figuriness. The price is so cheap for foreigners. They have English translation for every exhibit. It s helpful for you to know more about Indonesia culture . In addition, they use simple display to transmit the island culture. You can open up your eyes thank to beautiful craftman ship, gold treaures from Kings of Indonesia in past. All are old , outdated but that makes them more mystery . A must-go place in Jakarta
