I'm not sure about other museums, this for me is quite similar to the one that I visited in Yogyakarta. Suggest not to visit unless you're really interested on artifacts. I don't see a lot of history being explained and information are pieces by pieces, for me is a bit hard to relate. But its a nice place to escape the heat after visiting Monas nearby.

This museum displayed a lot of different statues and by visiting this museum we learned a lot about Indonesian history. The tour guide in this museum is also very informative and very friendly. It’s a great place to visit and spend time with family and friends.

Admission to the National Museum is inexpensive, despite being more than three times the price for foreigners than Indonesian nationals, and includes a small, but unhelpful Z-fold guide. Compared to many other national museums, this is not very impressive. Opposite the entrance there is a courtyard with mainly Hindu statuary on display. These are arranged cheek by jowl, with little context and only basic labelling. Returning to the main museum building, you pass through a room with a very dated display showing where the various ethnic groups in Indonesia come from, and then an almost empty hall with just a gamelan on one side – maybe this is used for live performances on occasion, but there is no indication of any schedule.

The main museum is over four floors. The ground floor looks briefly at prehistoric occupation of the archipelago, with the two above devoted to a more or less random collection of objects. Here they are well labelled in English and Bahasa, but flip from one topic to another with no discernible order. The top floor, accessible only by lift, is largely given over to a small number of gold objects – and not very interesting, with a small area containing some colonial era furniture, again not set in any context. In the basement there is a tiny souvenir shop, with nothing of interest for sale!
