Fine Art and Ceramic Museum

Our rating:

Jakarta’s Fine Art and Ceramic Museum is an odd place which mixes Western-style fine art with pieces of antique ceramic and houses them in an old colonial building constructed in the late 1800s.

The building itself is a fine example of Dutch colonial architecture and is worth more than just a cursory glance, but the contents of the museum are likely only going to appeal to art buffs rather than a general audience.

The feel of this museum is completely different to the others nearby and sometimes feels way too modern when considering its location in an old building in the heart of the old city.

Still, if you’ve got nothing better to do, this might be worth the piddling entry fee to swing through for half an hour. Otherwise, skip it.
