Jakarta is famous for its many fancy malls and office towers. However, you can still get the alternative trip to the museum. Going to museum is way more educative and affordable than going to the shopping malls. One of the recommended museum in Jakarta is Museum Gajah. I love this museum for its well designed and well maintenance building.
This is the first and the biggest museum in the South East Asia. Not like the stereotype of museum, Museum Gajah will offer you a pleasant tour with the clean building, informative display and interactive design.
You can see many historical relics from all over Indonesia, such as statue, ancient crafts and other historical matters. You can learn about Indonesian history from this museum since this museum has the most complete collections museum. This amazing Museum is located in Central Jakarta, near Monas, so that you can reach this place easily using any transportation modes.
