It’s a must-visit if you want to know Indonesia’s cultural history. I have one word to say – impressive!
The National Museum is a Beautiful Building
The locals nicknamed it the Elephant Museum. There’s even a bronze Ellie on the top front of the building. So, there’s no surprise why and how this museum got its monicker after the gentle giant. The facade is, obviously, colonial. This impressive 1862 structure has its long history back when the city was occupied by the Dutch.
