Well curated exhibitions and permanent collection. Recently went to the 17|71: exhibit showing the paintings of the presidential palace and it was awe inspiring. Masterpieces by Raden Saleh, Afandi, Bonet and Walter Spies among others. Highly recommended to get a glimpse of Indonesian modern art.

It depends. You can use bus or busway to Gambir train station. The location is just at the opposite of Gambir station. The easiest way is using Grab Car/Go Car/Uber or regular taxi . pls compare the price first. thank you
