The School tot Opleiding van Inlandsche Artsen ("school for the training of native physicians") or STOVIA was a medicine school in Batavia, now Indonesia's capital Jakarta. The school was officially opened in March 1902 in a building that is now the Museum of National Awakening in Weltevreden, an affluent district of Batavia.

Actually this place has been pivotal on the liberation and forming of the nation, but I don't think that we have tried our best to preserve and to show that. Poor exhibitions and displays at today's standard for museums. Limited and plain explanation on what are being displayed. If not due to curiousity, love and pride for the nation, I will not spend too much time here. On the other side of the building, there is medical museum which I think is better in term of effort to preserve, to inform and to educate. I find it quite scary that such instruments and tools were used to treat illness in the old days.
Good place to learn history related to events around "Kebangkitan Nasional". Clean and nice display although the number of items limited. Needs to have more interactive displays especially for children. Nice and informative guide (we went there for school field trip).
It's an amazing museum. You'll feel like you've been there when the real occurrence happened.
Big place for museum. It's best place to learn history and medical system in the past era.
The exhibition rooms were a bit dark, less light. Love the backyard though.
The place is quite hidden & easily passable. But I like the dioramas and the fact that it's quite well-kept. Only problem is the parking area because it's quite on the busy alternative street & with school bus tours around, it's not exactly helpful for other road users.
This museum has a large beautiful garden. The exhibits are very tidy. You can learn about the first Indonesian medical school history in here and how it helps shape Indonesia today.
