Ullen Sentalu is the best museum in Jogja. They provide complete family tree of Keraton Jogja and Solo monarchy. Their painting collections and traditional batik collections are awesome. You will get new knowledge about Javanese tradition and history. The museum architecture is like a labyrinth, feels like adventure, you will be amaze. Unfortunately you can’t take any photo’s here, except... More

I went via uber bike just to see if they would do it. And the driver did! We negotiated a price for the way back. You need about an hour to an hour and a half for the place and you can only do it by your. Interesting Central Java history, loved it. You walk from room to room while... More

This is quite a way out of the city for the amount of time you spend here. The museum itself has good exhibits but focussing almost entirely on the royal family portraits. The tour guide is compulsory and only every half hour so we waited 20 minutes on arrival before setting off. The guide was fine but many things were... More

However it turned out all wrong Last year i kinda got a quality visit because the guide was only guiding the 4 of us. This year the guide was guiding like 20 of us that i cant even... More

Ullen Sentalu is literally what I want in every museum in Indonesia. So clean, clearly told by the guide, and calmly presented. If Ullen Sentalu is a hotel I wanna stay there for days and enjoy everything. I love it❤❤❤

The museum is located about 25kilometres from the city of Yogyakarta. It was amazing experience when I visit this museum. I got knowledge about the stories of Princes and Princesses from Java Palace (especially from "Surakarta" Central Java and DI Yogyakarta), and I learned about Batik. There are many kind of Batik with the difference motif, they look nice. Unfortunately,... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this museum. It is hidden at the foot of the volcano area Kaliurang. A guided tour is a must and we had to wait a few minutes to wait for the english speaking guide to finish the previous tour. Ratna welcomed us and gave us a very good insight into the royal life of Yogyakarta... More

For someone who loves history, this place worth to go and wait. But of course not till 30 minutes. Highly recommended! With awesome English speaking guide. A side note, not every Chinese looking is from china. Not every Indian looking is from India. Our guide made a slight mistake on that which sorta offended some Chinese and Indian tourists.
