I know this from the Indonesia markets in Holland, but only from demos. Seeing an entire episode was very impressive. You can sit in the front when you walk in, which is actually the back since you get to see the musicians and the puppets...More

For an entrance fee of RP10000 (about 70 cents US), you get to see and learn a lot about Yogya history and culture. There are some flaws and imperfections in the museum, but it is a steal at such low entrance fee.

Sonobudoyo is a must see museum to understand the culture of the region. The only reason we do not give it a five star rating is that there were no explanative postings in English, or any other languages, besides Indonesian. This limits the Museum’s touristic...More

This is one of my favorite places in Yogyakarta as it is less crowded and very educational. If you want to escape crowds of people then this is the right place as some locals tend to avoid visiting this place for a reason.
