The building where the National Archives Museum is located used to be the residence of Reiner de Klerk, the Governor General of the VOC, the Dutch trading company during colonial times.

Restored a few years ago, it is now a tiny museum you can quickly visit on your way to Kota Tua. Please note that the actual location of the National Archives of Indonesia is on Jalan Ampera in South Jakarta.

There is nothing special about the collection displayed, it is mostly old photographs, maps, drawings and paintings.

The most enjoyable part is to spend some time in the well-maintained garden and to admire the architecture of the building.

The Museum is mostly used for private functions (one of the best wedding venues in Jakarta), which may explain why the grounds are actually taken care of. Prices start at approximately $5,000 for 500 guests.
