Reviewed 16 May 2014

Just like another museum, this one is slightly different since it is actual submarine. Need maintenance due to some rusty and color is getting faded away.

Its very nice site actually, but since no serious attention on it, its look lousy. However the guide there is superb. The site need to renovated and clean deeply for several time. The local authority need to do maintenance to all aspect on site, and need more activity to introduce this historicql monument to public

Good:
- East access
- Only three around the world, others are in Germany and Russia
- Well maintained

Not so good:
- Better to go with people, more than two. Kind of creepy.
- Explanation should be added

I walked to this monument from Boncafe. It's around 10 minutes. The monument is actually ex-submarine which was used during the battle in Irian Barat Independence. PT KAL separates the submarine's body and rejoining it again in today's place where we can see it.

The feeling inside is sensational, feeling so deep and can't imagine how people could've worked there. After that we can see short movie which explains the history.
