How to reach this place

In order to visit the museum, one needs to focus on one destination at first. This destination is known as Kalijambe, and it is actually fairly easy to reach this place especially from Solo. After reaching Kalijambe, there are two options. 

The first is using motorcycle taxi and the other is walking. The latter is not really recommended since it is not that close from the main road of Kalijambe to the museum. Since this museum is not open 24 hours a day, visitors need to know its exact schedule. Tue-sun, it opens from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and it closes in other days.
