Museum in Jakarta

It's Wednesday already. Another two more days to Saturday. Whilst it's important to work or study hard during weekdays, let's take a little break to plan what we are going to do or to go for the weekend.


I've been thinking for the past few weeks to go to a couple of more museums in Jakarta, particularly Fatahillah Museum and visit the Old City of Jakarta, as suggested by bleu and luky. If there is no other activities, I will probably go there this coming Saturday. YM me at b_aroengbinang if you want to join me and maybe you can see your picture at this blog :D.

Here are the list of the museum that I got from the Jakarta Post website. Most of the museums close only on Monday, and open daily between 9am to 2pm. Uncle Google helps me to find the some links for further information about the museum.
