As matter a fact, Indonesian people’s tend to use this cemetery as favorit place to take picture because we think is very good for photos background, either for personal photos or editorial ones. So don’t be so surprise if you find a group of teenagers wearing costume and make up as they taking picture inside the museum just for fun. Lucky me, I found lovely model in blue who in action..yippie^^

Sssssttt…this is the ugly part, the museum was not really in good shape right now. Umm..lack of attention from our government. Several statues are broken and so many junk *hiks. But…it’s a great plus cheap spot to enjoy your weekend.
