The permanent exhibition takes you past cultural treasures, history, religion and traditions of the Indonesian archipelago. Standard themes are investigated for each island-group to give you a good impression of just how enormous and diverse the cultural heritage of Indonesia really is.
Influences from outside
Thanks to the many trading contacts, the colonial period, the spread of Islam and globalisation, the many and varied communities of Indonesia have seen diverse influences. Yet there are still communities here that have remained virtually untouched for centuries. The exhibits explain these influences.
Your journey through Indonesia begins and ends at the museum shop. Here you can quietly sample the oriental atmosphere.
