You’ll find here on display a meagre collection of traditional Acehnese artifacts including cooking utensils, farm equipment, weapons and a very special stuffed two-headed buffalo.

Perhaps most interesting is the traditional stilted Acehnese house, which gives a fascinating insight into how the people of Aceh once lived. The museum is small enough to spin through in about half an hour and is worth a visit.
