One of the top museum attractions in Jakarta though we enjoyed the Miniature Park more. The older wing needs updating with better lighting so that you could see some of the impressive collections better.

I was severely disappointed by this museum, surely with so many peoples, island and so much history, there's a story to be told. I don't think a few badly exhibited tribal village models and a few dozen plates from China should sum up this countries past.

it can be visit after Mona's Tower. This museum is related to Indonesia history and culture. 1 hour is enough to visit all the parts.

Lots of scultures, inscripts, etc. Well worth visit to learn about Indonesia's history and cultures. Definitely recommend this museum to all visitors. I spent 4 hours in there.
