At that time when I was visited the museum still in "small renovation". That's really good because more modern and has a large space for the museum. It's easy to go to this location, you can walk from Bandung Indah Plaza (BIP), or you can walk also from Asia Africa street. Here you can find information about army and military... More

It was a good place when you like to know more about the military history of Indonesia, especially the infamous "Siliwangi Division" because they provided you with all you want to know about "Siliwangi Division" from the formation, the tribulation years of "Long March", the rebellion until now. The location is easy to found in which you can use "The... More

This is a state-run museum, so the quality of the facilities and services are not up to private-sector standard. However, for sheer historical regional-military facts, it has no peer. You can touch the old weapons, see old photographs and study old maps of army maneuvers.

The officer was nice and explain about the ticket, which is very cheap, Rp. 2500/people or 25 cents/people. The officer is not guide us thru the journey,... More

Except for the military equipment (tanks and artillery pieces from the war for independence from the Dutch) sitting out front, what I gather to be the museum part was empty or cleared out when I stopped by around October 2013. So I am not sure if they were just refurbishing it or what was going on.
