All of the other reviewer's comments about it being dark and dingy are accurate. Many of the display case windows are dirty enough that it further hampers viewing. There is no English signage so you cannot read about the items in the sparse collection. It...More

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.

If you are looking for general idea of how the cultural development in Central Java area, it is a good place to start. And that's about it, with nothing more you could explore from this museum. Lack of interpretation (signage, label, artefact description, etc) was...More
