This is a must to visit if you've never been here or first time to Yogyakarta. A history of Sultan's families and some lesson on batik is just some of the highlights.

visiting Ulen Sentanu in Jogjakarta is a good experience, but the content of the museum is just average, and the story told about the past Mataram kingdom is just average.
anyway it adds value to my history knowledge.

A Javanese museum located in Kaliurang which is around 45 minutes away from city. The temperature in Kaliurang is around 14-17 degree Celsius. So you can feel the cold breeze on the highland. It is a private museum handled by a family who are trying to preserve the Javanese culture from the extinction. The building is quite unique. There are many sections in the museum. You might get lost if you are alone. So they provide the tour guide ( including in the entrance fee ) for 45 minutes. They will give tourists to try the Jamu Dara which is the well-known drinking herbs for the ladies in the past as to preserve the youthfulness. Photography is prohibited in the museum. The Javanese people believed it will destroy the soul of the guardian. It is highly recommended for a visit.

Ullen Sentalu tell story about Islamic Mataram history and culture. There is free guide for each group (I guess, around 6-10 peoples), so we'll know Java history. The tour itself takes around 1-hour. No photography during tour. We can see a lot of painting, batik and arca. The location is in Kaliurang, and it's hard to find. But, it's worth enough.
