Location : Kota Pontianak, Kalimantan Barat, Indonesia.

3 years ago we came to this museum for the first time and the main hall was under renovation. So we were diverted to another block which housed all the beads and its history. We came back again after 3 years and although the same main hall was still partially completed much of it was very well filled with very nice arrangements of the spectrum of historical cultures found in Kalimantan Barat. Very impressive displays and good write up in the English language as well. Must visit when in Pontianak.

  1. Interesting museum to visit to. Looks like it is a must to includes it in the travel itinerary when one visit to Kota Pontianak in Kalimantan…..

    • It would be interesting if you could provide us a link to let us see what you have collected so far, no obligations though. I do have a collection of my own. TQ Chris
