The bottom part of the tower has a very good history section on Indonesia. I found that quite interesting. Going to top of the tower so, so. I would focus more on museums and the old town.

If you wait for the little transportation bus they have when you enter; it will take you directly to where you have to enter. Great place to go to see and read about Indonesian history and it's struggle for independence.
