Gedung Kesenian

Of most interest to foreign visitors will be the occasional Indonesian cultural performance such as gamelan from Solo or puppetry from Yogyakarta.

Performances aside, the building is a fantastic example of old Dutch colonial architecture. Built in 1821, the interior of the theatre still retains that old world charm and it is possible to peek your head inside on most days.
