ボランティアガイドが案内してくれます。日本語は毎週火曜日と毎月第一土曜日の午前10時30分、英語ガイドはEvery Tuesday at 10:30 a.m., every Thursday at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., and the second and fourth Saturday of the month at 10:30 a.m. 結構興味深いので何度か利用させていただきましたが、日本語ガイドはほぼ同じ内容ですが英語はガイドによって説明したい内容が変わります。 素晴らしいお宝もたくさんありますが、やはりディスプレイや設備不足なのが残念。入場料が安いので逆にありがたいのですが。

A nice quiet Museum in the midst of the crazy traffic of Jakarta. All floors of artefacts are well exhibited and spacious. The ceramic section is a must to see.

Weekend and looking for something to do. Decided to go to the museum and actually not my first time being here. But unfortunately the other building is under renovation so we could not take a picture with the beautiful architecture. Will be here after renovation for sure.

Jakarta's national museum impressed me a lot. It has tried to showcase everything related to Indonesian culture, art and history. The way different sections have been designed lets one understand the country in a perspective.

I liked the exhibit on early man. I didn't realize that Indonesia had this history. The treasure room was also nice.
