Well worth a look

What we say: 3.5 stars

Located in a building constructed in 1707 and which once served as the Batavia city hall, the Jakarta History Museum which is also known as Fatahillah Museum has a few items of some interest inside.

Most of the items are in the form of old furniture and some of it is truly stunning, such as old cabinets and mantelpieces, and it's definitely worth a look through.

You'll more than likely find groups of teenagers hanging out in here taking photos of each other, so don't be surprised when they want to have their photo taken with you.
