Getting to the museum is a bit tricky on a work day as you will have to deal with traffic along jalan Fatmawati, but once you get there its worth it. The building it self is a traditional Javanese compound with lots of trees really nice for kids to run around. For a price of only a bit more than... More

It is interesting place where you can get to know more about the country and its culture. It's good for a Sunday afternoon. There are activities such as making pottery and painting shirts. It is a good place to take your kid.

Museum Layang-Layang is a lovely little kite museum near Fatmawati in Jakarta. It is located on a backstreet though is signposted from the main road. It can be hard to miss but on Jl H Kamang the sign is pretty large. The buildings of the museum are in a Balinese/Hindu style. This speaks to the Bali-focus of much of the... More

Duration is 15 minutes and surprisingly my son got so excited watched it until finish. The movie quality itself is not too good but overall entertaining. Then we go... More

A kite construction expert, she developed her interest partly because kites were then the provence of men. Her collection includes batik kites, Chinese kites smaller than butterflies, enormous Balinese kites, kites made of leaves, kites used... More

The owners and manager are really kind and helpful and offer free tours around the place. after looking at the kites and javanese- post colonial architecture, children get to join in activities such as kite making, paper umbrella painting and clay making. i think...
