Bung Karno Museum

This is a rather empty free museum built into Sukarno's former Ende bungalow, where the exiled political icon wrote a Frankenstein knockoff, sat under trees having deep political thoughts, and painted nicely executed pictures of local rituals.

While the bungalow and grounds are very well kept. there's not much here beyond some dusty beds, plates and a few paintings and photos but almost nothing is captioned in English, so bring your Indonesian phrasebook/dictionary with you.

The modest home gives some idea of the origins of Indonesia's founding political father and if you walk through to the rear you'll find a very deep artesian well built in the 1930s.
