National Awakening Museum
In 1908, Indonesia's first medical school building witnessed the most important phase of the nation's struggle for independence from the Dutch. Young medical students and intellectuals gathered here for awakening meetings and for the establishment of the first political organization, Budi Utomo (Beautiful Endeavor). Now the building has been converted into a museum that celebrates this national awakening. Exhibits include a collection of antique medical instruments and the artwork of those who helped shape the future of Indonesian women.
STOVIA is oldest medical school in Indonesia, and it's quite important to visit it, if you are maniac to historical buildings/history. It's not too far from nearby Busway Shelter. If you came from Central Jakarta, stop at Atrium Shelter and then take a walk for 5-10 minutes, and then you'll found an old building, that's STOVIA.
What makes STOVIA unique is that the architecture is still maintained, everything is preserved like the original one, eventhough it has been renovated for times.
The ticket is quite cheap, only for IDR 2000 for adults, and for children is half the price. But when you enter, the atmosphere is not really cozy at all. It just really boring, quite dark room, and no AC. So be ready for sweating inside.
Besides, if you go alone, the museum will turn into a creepy one. And suddenly you feel lost! But, just enjoy anyway. Don't be hesitate. If you want a staff accompany you, you can ask them, but you have to pay some IDR 20000-50000 for the guide. the staff is really nice.
and the other thing, if you want to go out from the area, just take a bajay/taxi, cause there are no other public transportation in that are.
