All reviews new wing heritage society indonesian history elephant statue prehistoric times stone sculptures interesting exhibits ethnic groups musical instruments nice collection under renovation on display school children worth a visit entrance fee top floor air conditioned
Facade is very impressive as what you've expect for a national museum. Modern structures made it more interesting.
Displays were great but I agree on other reviews that it needs organizing and display descriptions.

From the Airport you can go directly to the the museum and the you can put your bag in the locker of the museum, there is a man in the next step of the ticket counter to put your bag. Must be count the time from the airport to the museum considering to the traffic in Jakarta. Enjoy Jakarta.
