Wayang Museum

The Wayang Museum is a puppet museum located in Jakarta, Indonesia. This unique museum lies west of the Fatahillah Square and showcases the Javanese wayang puppetry art form, which has been designated a World Heritage Creation. Bearing an impressive Dutch colonial architecture, the building sits on the site of the Old Dutch Church that was destroyed in an earthquake in the 19th century. At this museum, guests have the opportunity to explore wayang styles from Indonesia and abroad. Leather, wooden, glass, and zinc wayang, masks, and paintings are some of the fascinating objects that make up the museum's rich collection.

  • The Wayang Museum in Jakarta boasts a rare collection of wayang items, including Beber, Suket, Revolusi and Intan wayang; the museum also hosts wayang presentations throughout each month.
  • Admire the museum's amazing leather and wooden wayang creations, including the Kedu and Catur, which will leave guests mesmerized with their intricately detailed craftwork.
  • View other interesting objects, such as masks from Central Java and Bali, Blencong lamps, gamelans, and paintings that are on display within the Jakarta Wayang Museum's extensive collection.

Many travellers arrive to Jakarta via a flight to the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. To get to Wayang Museum, guests use public transportation services for convenient travel. If travelling by bus, visitors should board the Kota Tua route to reach the museum. From here, travellers may walk to the museum or take an interesting bicycle ojek ride. Taxis are available throughout the city to most local destinations, including the museum. Blue Bird and Silver Bird Taxi services are the most popular option amongst visitors and locals. Because traffic is heavy within the city, visitors are encouraged to avoid using rental cars.
