  • Doesn't worth my penny and time. It's just a colorful house with printing text from international big author. And the printing itself is already in bad quality. I don't see much about Andrea Hirata itself or his works. The ticket price is pretty expensive, compared to better museum out there. I have nothing insightful from my visit. But the cafe next to the museum is the best. They served good foods and good coffee. My star goes to the cafe not the museum.
  • This is a museum for the novel writer of Laskar Pelangi "Rainbow Troops". The place is painted to be very colorful and full of school replication items. There are many antique items around the museums that can bring back memories. old TV, music placer, Vinyl records, old movie posters. lots of multi color painting around. There is a coffee shop in the middle that you can enjoy the local coffee with brown sugar. good place to take photos or even photo shoot.
