Being very fond of national, regional and global history, I have been in this museum several times with my children : every time sharing them the story when I was present here in the commemoration of the Asian-African Conference in 1980. The plenary hall was set up as it was in 1955, which gives me goosebumps each time I come... More

The museum commemorates the 1955 Bandung Conference, an indelible etch in the history of nations. The historical images and artefacts of leaders from the 29 participating nations on display elicit poignant reflection on global turbulence post-1955: Afghanistan has since been ravaged by war, Burma has transformed into a completely different Myanmar, Northern and Southern Vietnams have become one while the...

This place is a definite must for everyone who wants to learn about History. A definite milestone for the new Asian and African nations. The birth of multiculturalism.

I've visited this museum many times. I like the display about history of Asia Africa Congress. It's very informative. It made me proud of our founding fathers who initiated the new movement. The museum is free. It can be accessed by many kind of public transportation.

This building is often overlooked, but in my view, if imagination allows, provide a more accurate description on how old bandung was compared to the "revitalized' Braga. Make a stop and do a photo op. Not much to do at the site. The Museum is... local quality. If you only have 4 day in Bandung or less, go somewhere else.

There are few places like this where major events that shaped the course of diplomacy were made. So when I was in Bandung I had to pay a visit to this historical landmark of anti-colonialism. Yes the museum exhibits are not the best I've seen, but you can't help but be wowed by the architecture and decor of the rest... More

Are you a history buff of the 20th Century? Put this on your list of things to see if you come to Bandung. It remembers a famous event and a lot of famous people involved in global politics in the 50s and 60s. The photographic exhibition gives you context, but going to the plenary hall where the conference was held... More

There is nothing special inside the museum. Not quite interesting at all except for pictures and furniture.
