As with any museum the National Museum of Indonesia was setup by a group of enthusiastic intellectuals who wanted to chronicle and showcase the country’s rich and interesting past.
Established in 1778 the museum has since been a valuable resource into the past of Indonesia. Its collections have been displayed across the world and are deemed significant insights into South East Asian culture and history.
The museum while still in its original guise with its signature elephant statue guarding the forecourt has seen expansions and renovation to help it maintain its credibility as an authoritative source of history for the Indonesian people.
A Jakarta hotel is a perfect way to start your tour of Indonesia in the country’s capital. A wise choice would be the Millennium Hotel Sirih Jakarta, it is a premier hotel in Jakarta with a central locality and a host of modern comforts.
