The Jakarta Museum of Fine Arts and Ceramics (Museum Seni Rupa dan Keramik in Indonesian) is located on Taman Fatahillah Square in North Jakarta. It is one of the 5 museums in the area with the Bank Indonesia Museum, the Bank Mandiri Museum, the Jakarta History Museum and the Wayang Museum.

It is located in a building that served as the Court of Justice of Batavia during colonial times from 1870 until the Second World War. It then became a museum in 1976.

If you are interested with Indonesian art, this is probably the best place to see original and replicas of famous painters such as Raden Saleh or Affendi. I also enjoyed those:
Dede Eri Supria - Urbanisasi 1977
Itji Tarmizi - Kerja Paksa
The Ceramic section of the museum is less interesting, unless you are a specialist.
Overall, if you have a busy schedule, you can probably skip the visit. If not, you should enjoy spending 1or 2 hours in this museum.
