Jakarta History Museum
This old City Hall of Batavia occupies the site of its two predecessors. The current building of fine Dutch architecture was completed in 1710 and once served many civic and judiciary functions. Beneath the front portico lie some cells which were used as dungeons. The museum took over the premises in 1974 and offers a fine glimpse into the city's colonial past. Thirty-seven ornate rooms display Dutch furniture, old maps, antiquities and Dutch East India Company (V.O.C.) memorabilia, recreating the atmosphere prevalent during the Dutch era. In the rear courtyard stand two ondel-ondel statues.
For me, this is one of the best museum in Jakarta. This is one of the oldest Dutch building in Indonesia. This museum's condition is also in good shape. This building is located near to another museums around. You can also visit Wayang Museum and also Art & Ceramic Museum. This museum costs you around Rp.2000,- or equals with $20 cents (very cheap, right? . You can also have local guide here. You can tip him / her for around US5,-. Pretty cheap, right? By the way, after you visit this museum, you can have nice meal at Cafe Batavia just across this museum. Very nice place. Dutch-Indies architecture and interior.
