Indonesia is a vibrant country to visit and its capital, Jakarta is a fascinating place to explore. Museum Bahari of Jakarta is ideal for you to go through the sprawling treasures of the rich maritime heritage.

The Museum Bahari highlights the legacy of Indonesia’s maritime industry. The museum is a symbol of the nation’s maritime activities, even to the present day. 45 minutes away from Citadines Rasuna Jakarta is where you’ll find this museum.

What to see

Visitors to this museum will see an entire range of maritime equipment and vessels, that were used by various nations across Indonesia. Historic spice warehouses built by the Dutch East India Company in the 1600s is what the museum occupies. Sadly, in January 2018, a fire ripped through the heritage buildings causing much damage to the collection. Nevertheless, the museum is open to the public with what was salvaged, enough to warrant a visit. For those of you looking to get away from the comforts of Jakarta serviced apartments and are interested in unique things, you’ll leave the museum awestruck!

Other things to do

The visit to the museum is combined with a few other things as well, as it is a 15-minute walk from Fatahillah Square, where you’ll find the entrance to Jakarta’s historic harbour, Sunda Kelapa. Located on the same street, you’ll find Menara Syahbandar, the harbourmaster’s tower which was built in 1839 by the Dutch.
