Though it is closed on public holidays, I still enjoy the garden behind the museum and the miniature around. They are great!! I really hope the state government can keep the museum well.

The museum focused on the ethnic groups in West Kalimantan, and it was great to learn more about the traditions of the people. They also had a great section on the ceramics of the different dynasties.
