Historical Places


Just like what my sister said... don't just go to malls to seek entertainment. Museums will amuse you in a different way, with knowledge as a bonus.

If you are free for a day, don't hesitate to visit Museum Bank Indonesia! You don't have to pay for the entrance ticket, it's 100% free, yet it is really worth it. The museum is surprisingly well-treated, the interior is modernly designed and there are so many stuffs to explore. The history of Bank Indonesia is very well-ordered with rich informations that come up with life-size figures, interactive presentations, original newspaper articles, and other artifacts. My favorite part was looking at the paper money collections around the world.

 Ragusa. The service was quite bad (the waiters were so unfriendly), but the ice cream... oh I want to eat more!

Me with the Art Appreciation class went to Museum Nasional last week. Not really strikes my fancy because I'm not really interested in prehistoric times, but eventually I found painting exhibition which was presented by Embassy of Italy and I had much more fun sight-seeing there.

Felt like walking on Salar de Uyuni.

After Museum Nasional, we went to Galeri Nasional Indonesia to see the exhibition of Indonesian maestro of modern painting, Raden Saleh. We had a chance to see his famous masterpiece, Penangkapan Pangeran Diponegoro and watch the documentary film. The exhibition will be held until this Sunday, so don't miss it!

Last year I went to Museum BI too :)! At first, I assumed that the museum is not really nice because it's free but after I went inside, my perception is changed. It's nice and I think I want to go there again hehe :p
Have you visit Museum Bank Mandiri? it's also nice but we must pay and there are no air conditioner :(
