“Excellent”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

my first impression: amazing! with all the architecture and history of this museum. the ticket price is including the tour guide, so it was amazing.

I did not realise before that this museum is a private-owned museum. not belongs to government.

must try the cafe of this museum. the place just remarkably beutiful and romantic. i would give 5 score if they have finished the new development building.

“Impressive museum of Javanese Culture.”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

I was very very impressed with this museum. It was amazingly curated, maintained and the place is just amazing. The 45 minutes trip from the city was worth it. The guide definitely knows what she was talking about, not just reading it from a textbook type of tour. Definitely by far the best museum I have visited in Indonesia, in terms of quality, depth and insight is on par with museums from other countries.
Very proud of this place and will recommend people to visit it when in town.

“Interesting museum to visit on the way to Prambanam”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

We visited Ullen Sentalu on our way to Prambanam.The museum was well organised and a very informative guide was included in the entry price. The building isn't actually very old but beautiful architecture on the slopes of the volcano Merapi - almost an alpine setting, but not cold. The resaurant was great, beautiful colonial setting and food good, especially if you are on your way to Prambanam.

“An in-depth view of Jogjakarta's arts”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

This museum offers a little bit of historical and artistic background of Jogja. It is also well situated, which is at the foot of Mount Merapi. I am not sure of its availability at this point due to the recent eruption however this is a place that's worth going to.
