Actually this museum is quite large and has an enormous amount of collection, but it seems that this museum lacks organization because several location of the museum is not air conditioned and really really dark and it made this museum really creepy.

I really liked this place because of the many cultural and historical items that are displayed here. The building is a bit worn down, but the collection is well worth the visit. There are parts about natural history, the colonial era and traditional javanese culture

The museum is quite large and has a very diverse display -- definitely worth a visit. There were a lot of empty spaces so don't know if exhibits were moved or done away with. Found it very interesting.
