Couples with a penchant for history will have a ball at the National Museum of Indonesia. It is considered to be one of the finest museums in Southeast Asia, carrying a massive collection of prehistoric and archaeological artifacts. Explore the Gedung Gajah (Old Wing) to see ancient Asian ceramics, historical relics, ethnographic objects, and stone sculptures from the Hindu-Buddhist era. On the other hand, the Gedung Arca (New Wing) is mainly devoted to cultural exhibitions. Take full advantage of the free tours organized by the Indonesian Heritage Society. Don’t worry about getting lost in translation—they offer it in English, Japanese, Korean, and even French!
