Worth a quick visit, especially if you're into science stuff and can understand Bahasa Indonesia. Unfortunately I can't speak the lingo so I spent about half an hour in the museum.

Bandung is a cultural city. There is many museums. I had the chance to see this museum. Small place but well organized. A lot of skulls showing the development of human race in Indonesia. Different stones but nothing particular. The most attractive feature is the mammoth skeleton in the main hall.

If you are museum-freak or you travel to Bandung with your kids, you should come to this place. This place have plenty of ancient collection: ancient stone, earthquake simulator, ancient fossil, etc. Good place to learn many things.

We were so surprised by the such low entrance ticket and the fact that the museum is quite nicely maintained. Also liked the museum shop, where you can get interesting bracelet made of stones The bathroom needs improvement in cleanliness though.
