Sonobudoyo (Sono-Budoyo) Museum is a good historical museum about the peoples inhabiting the largest islands of Indonesia, including Bali and Lombok, which are popular with tourists. Most of the exposition is devoted to Java. Among the exhibits are Wayang shadow theater dolls, masks, statues, fabrics, weapons, musical instruments. The museum's archaeological collection is perhaps the largest in central Java. The only bad thing, as in most state museums, is that the exhibition is dusty and unkempt, there are few information signs in English. In the evenings there is a performance of the traditional shadow theater "Wayang".
