Affandi is one of Indonesia greatest artists and I found him very interesting since almost all his kin (wife, children, grandchildren) has this talent as painter/drawer. Museum provided seats if you get tired of walking from all 4 galleries. The entrance fee including free drink (soda or bottled water). They charged 10/20 thousand rupiahs for camera/mobile camera, but I personally... More

if you love art you will love this museum. the atmosphere breathes like the presence of the maestro is still there. I love the fact that Affandi himself used to live there, and his original treehouse is also available for visitors.

Enjoyed an afternoon at the Affandi Museum. Born in Cirebon in 1907, Affandi moved to Yogyakarta in 1945, where he lived until his passing on in 1990. He was buried on the museum's grounds as he wanted to be close to his family and his paintings. Sadly, despite Affandis changing hands amongst collectors for hundreds of thousands of dollars, I...

Pay for a ticket (a bit steep by local estimates) and make it worth your while by asking for a guide (should be free). There is a young lady who speaks... More

You can learn a lot about Affandi, the famous late Indonesian painter, by visiting this museum, which used to be his home. His style is abstract painting.

I had wanted to visit here on my first trip to Jogja, back in 2013, but did not have time, so I made sure to visit this time. Affandi was an Indonesian artist and built this museum around his home. The architecture is somewhat reminiscent of Antonio Gaudi or Simon Rodia, and once you enter the compound you know you... More

Worth having a tour guide take you around to explain the stories behind each art piece. Entrance fee includes a free ice cream or drink.

There are 4 halls, and each hall are filled with the paintings from the beginning of Affandi's professionalism. Affandi's paintings displayed are those which are not to be sold, starting from the paintings using pencils, paint brush, then his fingers. Local guide are available. Other halls fulfilled with Affandi's daughters's paintings and Affandi's grandson's paintings. Some are for sale.

This place has plenty of paintings to look at. You can check out Affandi paintings along with some of his family members paintings too. Nice indoor museum with good facility. Plus you will get a free ice cream/soft drink as a compliment by the end of the visit which is not bad at all.
