It's been a while since the last visit here and decided to watch the super blood blue moon here last January. The district govt should expose this area more esp. for night visit because the place is so bright with shot lights everywhere, nice area for late run exercise as well. You can have a small picnic or gather with friends there.

The most iconic place in Jakarta. You haven't come to Jakarta if you don't see this monument. If you don't have problems with altitude, you can go up to the highest floor to enjoy the view of Jakarta. They close on Monday but the area is possible to be visited at any time

The pride of all Indonesians for fighting for independence. I dilute the Indonesian government for educating their people by having a pictorial museum on the lower level. And if u r lucky, u may be able to witness the opening of the golden door which has a hidden golden frame face and contains the declaration of independence signed by the first Indonesian president. Also, u can view the city of Jakarta from the top level by using lift from the back entrance. Notice on the tip of the monument with the shape of frame is plated with 50kg of pure gold😘😘😘

A great place to visit with your family especially if you have young kids. The place is huge and well taken care. It is crowded in the weekend with families and friends just hanging out and killing time. A good track for walking and slow jog. A must visit place in Jakarta...

A very interesting place to visit. There are many public transport to reach National Museum (Monas). Entrance fee is free. There is elevator to get into the top of the building, but not quite sure if you have to pay for it. I haven't gotten to the top yet. There's also a gorgeous fountain nearby, sometimes there are performance on the night. I would suggest you to bring your sunblock, because sometimes the weather can get very hot during the day. It is a child friendly place, and a very educating. Inside, there are dioramas which tells the story of Indonesia, mostly about historical events such as independence day, etc.

Wow.. Good fun and Great views!! You get to see the view of Jakarta city. I've been here several times, but this is the first time to rise to the top, with my parents. Come in the morning to avoid the queues. When you visit Jakarta, this place should definitely be on your list of things to see.

The best place for you who need refreshing your mind, this place usually for jogging every morning, the environment is so friendly, so green yet so hot, because you know you are in jakarta. This place good for family vacation, sport, photography, or the other event. You need to come and visit this national monument, this place is greatly awesome.

Spacious monument area. Definitely get past the market area quickly. All kinds of original food and souvenirs available. But not what we came to see. The parking was out of control. Glad we got a spot. The monument is very picturesque in the Jakarta sky line. If you have time enjoy the grassy areas for lounging or a picnic.

Highly recommend this museum if you're around that area even if you're not into history as the view at the top was breathtaking. There were many small miniatures that depict the history of Indonesia very clearly and aid visitors to understand and picture it well. The ticket price for this museum was very affordable.

A good and historical place for the people of Indonesia. All people from all around the country are confirmed know this landmark. It’s a must to visit here if you are managed to visit Jakarta especially if you are first timer. It is very near and accessible by foot from the Jakarta’s main train station, Gambir train station. It shines lights during the evening.

One of the most iconic place in Indonesia. Many historical things here. Around the Monas there is park that you can use to rest. If you want a memorable moments, there are many photographers that could take a photo of you and print it there. So you could keeps your moments in a good photo

A great place to learn the history of Indonesia and it's independence. Be sure to learn about the entrance tickets because you need to pay extra if you plan to take a tour at the top of Monas. There is a security screening at stair entrance. So be sure not to bring any weapons of sharp objects. It is advised to bring your own food and drinks. Try to get to the top during sunset, the view is astonishing.

Clean and safe. The minus is I need to go circle from the parking spot to come inside the yard of the monument. So, you have to walk through the market that sell souvenir and food. I mean it's good in the eyes of promotion but please it's like 30 degrees outside, sweaty..

A nice place to hang out with family or friends. There are jogging tracks, couple of sport fields, benches on the park, etc. And inside the monument is a museum worth visiting. You'll be seeing dioramas and figures related to Indonesia's Independence Day and stuff. You also could get to see Jakarta cityscape from above the monument by taking the elevator.

The place is full of history about Indonesia is highly recommended for foreign tourists and people who come from out of town. In addition to historic sites, the national monument is now much better, cleaner, and more manicured than ever before. Highly recommended!

Good place for bringing kids. There's a vehicle to go around the place for free. You can go to the top of the monument by paying Rp 10 k. Great view up there. In the basement you can read 3D history of Indonesia.
