Additional Information

Introduction

This museum is committed to traditional Javanese wayang puppetry, and contains a collection of thousands of puppets from throughout Indonesia. The place offers insight into this beautiful and longstanding piece of the culture. The puppets aren't just for viewing: they often entertain at the museum, usually with gamelan music. The museum site has an interesting history itself: the original building was built in 1640 as a Dutch church; it was renovated several times, and finally in 1938 was somewhat restored to its original Dutch colonial architecture.
