What we say: 4 stars

Wayang is a type of puppet which has played an important role in Indonesia's history with the artform primarily being used to pass stories from generation to generation.

Displayed in Museum Wayang are two styles of wayang – golek, a three-dimensional style usually made from wood and kulit, and a two-dimensional style traditionally made from cow hide. Alongside these traditional puppets is a good range of topeng or traditional masks which are used in plays across Indonesia.

This is a great collection and is well-worth checking out.
