“Exceeded my expectation”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

I've been to several museum in Indonesia, so my expectation is low when my son asked me to take him to this museum.

The ticket is cheap, as usual like other museum in Indonesia. But when I enter the main lobby, I was stunned. This was not like any other museum in Indonesia. The management is very professional and did a very good job. The collections are very nice with giant T-Rex skeleton and everything. Though some labels need to be replaced but it's already exceeded my expectation.

You really should come, you won't regret it.

“Standard museum”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

The museum is already old and it's not very interisitng inside. There are objects that already dirty even that they are untouchable. It also too dark and spooky inside.

“Great Museum for Kids and Adults Alike”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Although as in most museums, the exhibits are behind roped off areas, or behind plexiglass, many of thesemi precious rocks, geodes, and special formations, are totally hands on! It was wonderful to watch the excitement and enthusiasm of the children as they got to touch volcanic rock, or rock from a tectonic plate with indications of a fault line or other unique geological features. I even heard a couple teens talking about what would happen to some of the bones if the Zombie apocalypse arrive. Even though they said it mostly in Bahasa Indonesia (the Indonesian language) apparently Zombie apocalypse remains the same. Good to know!
