This is the main museum of the capital and the country as a whole, and objectively it is really the best museum in Indonesia. There are a huge number of fossil artifacts, large statues found during archaeological excavations, as well as an ethnographic section. The most interesting part of the exposition is located on the 4th floor of the museum - it is a large collection of jewelry. But unfortunately, it is impossible to photograph this collection, even on a cell phone, this is being monitored very closely. In the rest of the museum, you can safely photograph whatever you want.
The National Museum is very clean and tidy, everything is signed in detail and duplicated in English. A colorful guide to the exhibition is issued with the ticket. You should not expect too much from it compared to even some Russian non-metropolitan museums, but in Indonesia it is definitely the best.
