The location is very close to Gedung Sate, great road access and is close to shopping and dining. It is suitable to bring children to know the history in ancient times.

Lots to see and learn for all ages. Fun included at the earthquake simulator. It's a site for a 1 time visit, but get a whole morning to see and enjoy everything.
