Nice museum with very illustrative explanations about 1940-1960. The fort itself is a nice entourage.

This is of course informative like every museum. With a short movie room about the history. Examples of living, clothing and carving from former time.

There is a short video showing the history of independence, and then dozens of dioramas on different aspects of the independence movement. I actually enjoyed seeing the different dioramas and learning more about the history of Indonesia. Note that the museum is closed on Mondays.
