Was very curious about this place as it was the only museum we heard about, and seemed to be one of the only sights in Pangkal Pinang. Small museum with very uninspiring displays, much more impressive from outside than inside. It was free entry so I guess you get what you pay for.
The history of the building seemed more interesting than the museum - it was used for negotiations between the Indonesians and the Netherlands during the independence war - but we only learned about this from a sign on the museum front yard (and not in the best area to read) after we had already visited.
