Been here once. Got to see the luxurious and antique decor in the palace. Nice place to take pictures and enjoy the scenery.

the majestic palace of the deli sultanate. visit Maimun, do not forget to be a day Melayu. By wearing traditional Malay clothes, it seems like a flashback to the glorious era of Maimun Palace. Feel the thrill of wearing a typical Malay traditional dress and walk around the palace, guaranteed addiction.

It just a building was called a sulthan palace The sulthan him self is not stay there, not so many things can you see in this place but can see how great the kingdow was. Here you find pictures of the sulthan With the entrance ticket 5K for local, they offer visitors to take picture in traditional melayu outfits...it was a nice and unexpected experiences me and my wife feel With only 100K for couple, they will fit you like a king and queen or they "Panglima", pluusssss you will get 1 printed photograph of you as your souvenir back home You must try that one

A must see when in Medan. Very unique and so full of history. Very fun to rent clothes like a king and make pictures - it's also cheap. Very colourful and contemporary. So many mixed cultures in the ubication of the place. Don't expect to spend hours here as its very small. Buy some local purses from the local vendors outside and remember to bargain down the price. I got 15/1-2018 10 pcs purses for 80.000 IDR /5,1 USD / 7.56 SGD /34 DKK

The entry ticket only IDR 5K. But there's nothing to see except the building and some history behind it. The palace is not all accessable and there is traditional clothes rental inside so if you want to take pictures in traditional clothes and heritage background,this place is great place for you to visit. There is a place with piece of cannon that have tale behind it

It'd be better if the exhibits are more organized. It's a pity that for a big palace, only a limited space is open for the public.

I don't know why, but all historic things have disappeared one by one.. it is so sad when you expect to know the history but all you find just seller who sell the the souvenirs

Nothing to see, nothing to learn. You only see people everywhere make a selfie with rented traditional costum. You cant enjoy the collection . And sorrounding are bad design street food stall If you only have limited time while in medan, better to skip this place

The center point/ picturesque of Istana Maimun is the Sultan's throne. Historical building and still own by family of Sultan Deli. They have paintings of previous Sultans, photograph of the olden days and family trees of Sultans. However it is lacked of history information to learn. Photos & paintings have no explanation. Limited area to explore, as right & left wing and the ground floor are still being the home of current Sultan's and extended families.

This a great building actually. Tapi perlu pembenahan dari pemerintah setempat. Tidak ada guide dan sedikit yg bisa di explore

Entry: IDR 5K (no charge for kids under 5 yo). Parking fee: IDR5K. It was very frustrating & disappointing to see so many vendors inside the palace main hall. Felt more like a market than a historical palace. Should learn from Istana Pagaruyung (Sumatera Barat) and Istana Siak (Riau) on how to run historical palace tourism & hospitality.

Former buildings built by the Deli Sultanate. Now this building becomes an icon of tourist attractions in Medan. This building have lots of nice spot to photograph.

Toilet cukup bersih, museum cukup terawat, nice to know, entrance fee 5k

Perhaps not even worth a 1 star! Neglected. A pity to such a beautiful palace it once was in 1888. Only IDR5000 to enter but even then, its not worth it. The place need care and maintenance. Sellers should not be allowed to have kiosks in the main hall! Ruin furniture lying around. Old photos almost damaged. A pity. However these photos doesn't show the actual situation. Hope the authorities restore the place soon.

the palace is in the middle of town, easy to reach by taxi or gojek/grab, the entrance ticket is also cheap, staffs are all friendly. And of courseee, the palace is a pretty place and it's well maintenanced, well done Medan, I love to be here. Ps : you can rent the traditional clothes and wear them aroubd the palace to experience how it's to be part of Medan Malay.

Landmark of Medan city. So sad seeing people litter everywhere. This palace really needs to be preserved and made to be like a real palace.

Cool place, a little neglected but everything in Indonesia is. Definitely worth the entry cost
