ENJOYING "ME TIME" AT THE MUSEUM FATAHILLAH
It's been quite a while since I shared stories about the beauty and uniqueness of architecture, right? I miss sharing stories here.
By the way, how was your start of the year? it's not too late not to say that it's still a new year. Because January isn't over yet. Ha ha.
I fill the beginning of my year with sightseeing in the city and choose vacations that are close enough and affordable. I chose to visit my favorite place: MUSEUM!
Yes, to any city I go, it seems I always wonder, what museums can I visit in that city?
This time, the museum I visited was a very famous museum in Jakarta, the Fatahillah Museum.
Without the need to write down what and how the Fatahillah museum was built, you can read it on Wikipedia by yourself.
I want to tell and show you how the contents of the museum and what kind of building really is in my opinion. so. lets go!
Actually, this is not the first time I visited this museum. Maybe more than five times since I moved to this city in 2009. However, this visit left me momentarily stunned.
The museum has become tidier and more organized, and one more thing: the entrance has moved!
I guess I came at the wrong time or the wrong day, because in one week, the museums around here were all closed for maintenance. Usually off on Tuesdays.
But it wasn't! I'm just at the wrong door. The door that used to be at the front of the museum has now shifted to the left wing of the Fatahillah park entrance.
okay, after the problem of finding the door was solved, I went straight to the registration desk. It is enough to pay 5000 rupiah for the general category, while for students with only 3000 rupiah, we can walk around as much as we want in this historic museum.
As soon as I passed the big door, I was immediately greeted by room eight, which had a mural by the artist Harjadi on the wall. I didn't stay here long, because there are still parts of this building that I want to explore more.
I went to the next room which led to Prince Diponegoro's room. Again and again I want to say, even the layout of the room has been changed and improved. I feel it was worth coming back to this building.
Prince Diponegoro's room was flown into three. The living room, the women's prison (which is located in the inner dungeon) and on the second floor.
To go to the second floor, visitors are expected to change their footwear with the ones that have been provided, this aims to keep this special room clean.
after changing into my red slippers, I hurried through a spiral staircase made of solid, dark red wood. The end of the stairs is a room dominated by black and on the walls there are many articles telling about the journey of Prince Diponegoro.
Separated by a door, there is another room, namely a bed that was used by Prince Diponegoro. An ancient bed placed on the right side of the room. while on the left side, there is a table and books that review the national hero.
In this room there is a window that looks directly into the central garden of the museum.
finished with this room, I went down, changed my shoes, and headed to the room next to it.
A room that is not too spacious compared to before. In the middle of the room, there is a long table protected by thick glass. Inside this table is a collection of several stones used as tools from ancient times.
When looking up, we can see that the roofs of all the rooms in this museum are covered with wood. so pretty isn't it? despite being an ancient building, this place doesn't leave any musty or other unpleasant odors at all.
In the next room, I found a larger mural than the previous one. The length of the room that tells about the heroism of Sultan Agung. while on the other side there is a very beautiful pulpit of Sultan Agung.
The large windows in the museum are protected by bars. The more rusty it looks in almost all parts, the more it looks very beautiful and magical.
I'm still not satisfied.
I came out to the center of the museum. A roomy place that is used as an inner garden. By the visitors used as a place to rest for a while after tired of walking around.
Not far from this place, especially right in the lowest room, there is a dungeon. Here we can also see large boulders that are still neatly stored.
It's really fun, isn't it a walk to a museum?
Apart from enjoying ancient architecture, you also learn more about history.
By studying history, it is hoped that we will not repeat history which is full of pain and misery.
Next time, where is the best place to go?
Hi, I am the child of the universe, I like to read books with various genres. I was born in the city of batik but can't draw batik yet. I want to be a novelist, but my works are only short poems that are included in anthology books.

Greetings @titisnariyah, a delightful 2023 and welcome back! I admire you for your assertive attitude as stated above. Way to go! 👍
It's quite interesting to know that the Fatahillah Museum is also recognized as the Jakarta History Museum. Wikipedia told me about it, haha. 🤣 And being aware of that landmark's tremendous importance in your city, it's surely not a surprise that people flock to its story-filled walls - to learn more about your prestigious heritage. I'm impressed by the management's conscious efforts of conserving that historic building (previously known as the city hall of Batavia) for more generations, as demonstrated by the wearing of dedicated footwear for some special spaces. Remarkable! 😊
It's really amazing, isn't it? Of course it is not an easy thing to protect state assets that are hundreds of years old. Thank you for checking directly into Wikipedia 😀, I forgot to include a link to make it easier for the reader. I'm sorry for that. Its my bad.
Also thankyou for the support and welcoming me back, @storiesoferne ☺️
That's okay @titisnariyah, you haven't sourced out information from that website anyway. I look forward to experiencing more of your personal narratives about fascinating architecture and design from Indonesia and abroad. Have an enjoyable one! 😊
