      The National Museum is an archeological, historical, ethnological, and geographicalmuseum located in Jakarta and is popurlarly known as the Elephant Building. The building is known as Elephant House because of the bronze elephant statue in the front of the building.
    It is not only possesses collections of prehistoric and contemporary arts and artifacts from Indonesia, including textiles, stamps, sculptures, bronzework, and maps, but also contains a major collection prehistorical artifacts, archeology, numismatik & heraldics, historical relics, geography, ethnography, and ceramics.

    The Jakarta city’s most impressive museum really delves into the history both of the capital city and the rest of Indonesia. The 19th-century building is suitably dramatic and its highlights include early Chinese ceramics, pieces culled from Java’s myriad temples and a bronze elephant that was gifted to the museum by the King of Thailand. The museum is also home to a number of eclectic temporary exhibitions. Merdeka Square Tel: (021) 381 1551. Website: museumnasional.org Admission charge.
