Awesome place. Equipped with many dioramas. Nice and clean too. My daughter had a wonderful time and experience here. A thing is some parts were under renovation so we can't see the whole place. Some rooms also unequipped with slides so older people and wheelchairs can't go to. We went there during fasting month, so it's just few visitors besides us. I gave it a 5 stars museum. Maybe because it runs by soldiers. We all know how their discipline. It is tidy and neat. Superclean and organized. Nice job, soldiers!
Its been a great collection, they try to arrange base on the history timeline. A lot of airplane keep to show. Some amphibious tanks, torpedo boat, helicopter and the first airplane in Indonesia are displayed. For sure need to renovate as their facilities are outdated. But people keep visiting this site for their collection. Keep the hood work!
The place look old and not very well maintained, but considering the admission price.. you get more then what you paid. The open space where they put the planes and some old tanks is really nice (yes the planes are not well maintained..but it still okay).
Good place to learn the history of Indonesian army. They also have cafetaria, so you can enjoy some food.
I'd love this museum since my first visit as a elementary student. But my latest visit got me upset. They didn't take care it well.. The roof is leaking, and the place for outdoor displays (plane, tank, etc) has too many dust and dirt on it. Maybe its all because they didn't have too many visitors these day.. So if you have a child, or cousin, you can take them to Satria Mandala and tell them a little about history of Indonesia.
First of all, a bit of background. Museum Satria Mandala is a museum dedicated to all branch of Armed Forces, specifically after it's foundation in 1945. Modeled after Imperial War Museum in UK, Satria Mandala were located in former Presidential House of Wisma Yaso, a house that former Indonesian president built for her wife Ratna Dewi Sukarno. The museum boasted lot of artifacts from all types of small arms that Indonesian armed forces uses up to 1980s, Almost all type of armored vehicles that was used by 1980s, Airplanes in form of Mustang, Invader, Fishbed, Skyhawk, Super Puma, Bell 204 among others, replica of Jaguar-Class Torpedo boats that was used during Aru sea incidents and dioramas covering all important moment of Indonesian armed forces. Lastly is historic artifact such as carrier that was used by General Soedirman, Captured insignia of various rebellions during early days of Indonesia and so on. But sadly the museum were never renovated bar some sporadic addition of items, and the diorama now feels old and dusty, there are no audio guide and personal guide. The building feels old and leaking. The vehicles is either dusty or vandalized. Nevertheless those who are interested on military history should visit the museum, those who comes from abroad might enjoy the diversity of the display, not everyday you can see SA-2 Guideline SAM next to A-4 Skyhawk. The access is easy, huge parking space and the ticket is cheap. But like many Indonesian museum, this place is not handicap friendly.
Nice place to visit with a lot of collection of armory, helicopters, tanks, jets, etc. related to Indonesian army. Remember to bring mosquito repelant for there is a lot of kosquitoes in this area specially tanks area.
Since january 2018 all foreign visitor are allowed to enter this museum and other military owned museum so relax unlike other museum in indonesia this one is very clean and tidy with great collection including small to big fire arms, boat , missiles and airplane, also don't worry about hot weather because they have ac (once again unlike other indoesian museum) at least at the time i visit this museum there are only 4 visitor so it feels like your private museum but yeah little spooky if you alone inside
Excellent place with lots to see. Note - Foreigners must get permission to visit.
