I wish it offers more exhibition or displays about the heroic period of surabaya than it has. Sadly it is extremely hot during the day to walk around. It doesn't open at night.

This attraction tells the story of Indonesia's independence stemming from the Battle of Surabaya. It is well presented with all exhibits being clerly marked. I particulary like the mural of the shark (Suro) and the crocodile (Boyo).
