For many people undertaking research, museums provide information and resources as well as access to archives. Museums also provide the ideal learning environment, active hands-on participation or passive observation. More importantly, museums are the source of living history and perhaps an insight to the world that lies before us. Well-maintained museums are able to display historical records and bring out the beauty in them. In this book, you can easily explore the museums in Indonesia and learn about the nations complex history. Discover a new way of looking at Indonesia. Experience it for yourself.
