The small museum gives a short but very clear history lesson about Aceh. It is informative and it gives an impression how Aceh developed thru time. Admission fee is Rp 10.000 which does not break the bank

Nice museum with traditional Aceh house model. You will gain knowledge in this museum about Aceh, many exhibiting antiques from the trading period and the Aceh tradition. The museum is open from morning but at lunch hour it will close and open again after that.
