I visited the museum around last year, 2011 . The museum not well manage, very dark, spooky. Not one of the best museum in Indonesia.

here you can see, learn and find out what wayang is, we take a short tour and learn much about wayang and Indonesian tradition.

I didn't expect much of this place. One of the owners befriended us in a nearby museum and gave us a very personal tour of this place founded by his grandfather. He showed us the first 12 exhibits or so and then launched into what must be a necessary (but low key) sales pitch for maintenance of the (otherwise free) museum through puppet sales. It was lucky that we looked further and discovered another whole building of exhibits including some quite unusual puppets, musical instruments and historical artifacts. This is such a part of Indonesian culture that the museum shouldn't be missed, but don't end the tour when the gift shop is shown! And you will enjoy it no matter your age if you enjoy art and history.

Good collection of puppets, presentation is sufficient but high humidity and temperature made this visit uncomfortable.
