It's Time to Go to the Museum to Add Your Collection of Tourist Attractions! “Museum Wayang Jakarta"

Jakarta is the capital city of Indonesia which is famous for its crowd. But behind it, Jakarta also has a museum that is quite famous; the museum is a “Museum Wayang” or in English is “Puppet Museum”.

The puppet museum is located within the old city tourist area which is very close to the Jakarta History Museum, precisely located on Jl. North Main Door No.27, Special Area Capital of Jakarta 11110.

The building was built in 1640 and named the De Oude Hollandsche Kerk ("Old Dutch Church"). But the building is also undergoing some renovations. In 1732 there was an earthquake and damaged the building so that it needed repair and the building was renamed De Nieuwe Hollandse Kerk (Dutch New Church) until 1808. Then on 13 August 1975, a building of puppet museum was built and inaugurated its use as a museum.

As the name implies, this museum exhibits various types of puppets made of wood, and leather as well as other materials. The collections of puppets from various regions in Indonesia are from Banyumas, Cirebon, Gedog, Kedu, Kaper, Kijang Kencana, Klitik, Madia Krucil, Ngabean, Sadat, Sasak, Suluh, Surakarta, Tejokusuman, Measure, and Revelation.

Among the overseas puppet collections are from India, the Netherlands, Malaysia, Thailand, Suriname, China, Vietnam, and Colombia. So the puppets on display not only come from Indonesia alone but come from neighboring countries.
