Museum, cemetery, library, park and souvenirs block in one place. A nice place to learn and pay respect for our history esp. About Our first President, Soekarno aka Bung Karno. Good maintenance and clean environment but hard to find parking lot. Suitable for high school field trip and religious trip.

It was great to see so many visitors paying their respects to Indonesia's first president. The museum is mostly photographs and could use more explanation and historical background. The history presented was sparse and besides not giving us an idea of the times in terms of politics and society, it also didn't give us a sense of what daily life... More
