I was kinda skeptical at first because it's a government-owned museum, and the ticket price was a mere thousand rupiahs (less than $1). Once inside, I was wrong. The museum has various replica of traditional Minangkabau houses (I found out that the traditional house for Minang tribe living on the coasts are different from the others), dresses, jewelries, traditional food, furnitures, antique trinkets, even replicas of ancient human bones, tools, and animals.
The displays are good, each exhibit was given a fairly complete description. If you want to observe and read the explanations one by one, it may take more than 2 hours to enjoy the whole museum. Also, the museum has good air circulation, air-conditioning, and good overall cleanliness.
