My son often plays kite with his friends at home, and when we talked about this museum, he's so excited mo to make a kite himself. When we got there: They were very polite a... More

This was a great place to take a field trip. The kids watched a video about the history of kites and they got to paint their own kite. The one piece I did not enjoy was the museum. The tour guide was to slow for grade 1 students.

Okey its nice park but not huge comparing to others but at least Jakarta has one better than nothing. Better to get the FAST TRAX better than waiting in long ques with hot weather.

Traditional building, lovely people to show us how to make kites from scratch after first showing us around their amazing kite museum. The kids then had a chance to run around the grounds flying their kites!

Kites have been used for all different purposes in many countries. They also come in different sizes from the tiniest one (mere 2 cm) to the gigantic ones. Some kites were made for purpose of science such as creating aircrafts or attracting lightning, some were made for cultural celebrations and traditions, and some were made purely for joy. It is...

We had been to the museum with our kids. Firstly , the place was a little difficult to find. The entrance tickets are just about 10 /15 thousand rp . They made us watch a video which the kids weren't too interested about. We then went inside and watched the display of kites of various kinds... this was really interesting.... More

We had a tour from a personal guide, as well as a craft activity & watched a video about kite flying, & met Mrs Puspoyo, who owns the collection & is passionate about kites & batik. Some very, very beautiful,... More

It's a kite museum but you can do a lot of activities here. From learning to make a simple kite itself, making pottery, painting batik, painting wayang. When you arrive at the museum, they will ask you watch a video showing about kites from other countries and kites competition. They ask you to do so, because they need a little... More
