Indonesia has a rich and complex culture and history, and there is no better way to understand this dynamic country than through its world-class museums. From ancient relics to contemporary art, traditional batik dress to avant-garde transportation, discover the best museums in Indonesia.
As Indonesia’s first international modern art museum, the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Nusantara (MACAN) brings together works from native and international artists.
It’s probably the only place in Indonesia to have Andy Warhol, Yayoi Kusama, and the nation’s fabled artist Raden Saleh under one roof.
Public and family tours are organized weekly, as well as artist talks and discussions for avid art enthusiasts or even the curious general public who would like to engage. This museum also dedicates a special space for children to learn and create art.
