Attraction details
Reviewed 1 February 2015

The last week of 2014 took me on a surprise trip to London.amazing city,very cold weather and people.the Victoria &Albert Museum was one of my most favorite places that I visited.founded in 1852 and named after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert,this monument is just a huge sprawling space.
It is the world's largest museum of decorative arts and crafts and designs.
you name it:ceramics,metalworks,paintings,furniture,paintings,marble.cast plaster and its there with such good documentation.low couches are provided where one can sit down,put the speakers to one's ears and hear the commentary.very quiet surrounding and it was my good fortune that I got a chance to go and visit this monument peacefully.the reception has a beautiful glass murano hanging from the dome.
amazing sections of real jewellery,war weapons,iron works,the zone of all bust statues,Rodin the Thinker.amazing.I have good photographs to add,but I decline as one has to really go and take time off to see the china, the pottery,the works on display in this huge museum.
have not completed seeing the entire museum,so will go again to London.

First visited the museum about 20 years ago, it looked interesting. The second visit a few months ago, the atmosphere in it looks much different. Placement of goods less attractive and less interactive with the visitors. When the young visitors are expected to visit this museum, there should be a lot more interesting information written on each item displayed.

The Purna Bhakti Museum is a history based museum specilised on the life of President SUHARTO>
He was the former second President of Indonesia and a powerful political leaderin modern Indonesian History.
The museum houses and displays a large amount of Suharto's collection,artworks and souvenirs received from various world leaders and Indonesian people accumulated during the 32 years of his administration in Indonesia.
that was the golden era of Indonesia.
The museum is a modern buildingwith design took shape of TUMPENG,a traditional Javanese cone shaped rice,symbolised GRATITUDE.the museum was built on the initiative of Madame tien Suharto(his wife).
well over three hours is the time taken to see and admire the exhibts from all over the world.
the wood carving of the kissing deer,the Ramayana is almost carved on an entire tree.must see to really admire all this.
well documented and preserved and lots of efforts to really hand it over to the next of generation.grateful to Raji Chandrasekhar for having taken me to this wonderful monument the day I reached Jakarta itself.

People said that this is collections of international gifts for delegations for Soeharto (the Indonesia former and the longest serving President). The biggest gift (and the most lavish) is a bed carved with jade and other jewelry.

Too bad the museum is dark and dusty. They should improve the lighting to makes the artifacts more dramatic.
