It was okay. I guess a must do/see when in Semarang because there aren't lots of places to visit. There's a nice history to the building, guide optional.

Historical building worth visiting. A tour guide is a good option. Thanks to pt KAI to restore the building. Maybe can improve the content of the inside not just pictures.
