"Nice touristy attraction. Great views from the top of the monument, and a pretty informative museum (especially for Dutch people) in the base of the tower."

"Please please please try the night attraction! Since 2016, the acting governor of DKI Jakarta opened the Wisata Malam Monas, where you can try the binocular on top of the monument for a spectacular view of the city."

"One of the most historical place in Jakarta. I rarely come here, but the last time I came here, the museum already had had a worn out look. Looking very contrast with its look from the outside, the inside has a creepy atmosphere. It is lacking of light, there are litters everywhere, and many visitors sitting literally everywhere (I guessed they came for hanging out not sightseeing). Too bad. And the last bad news from this museum is the elevator jammed in the mid of its journey to the top when there were people inside. I hope the government will take action to renovate the museum to a more international level. "

"Nothing really special since the national monument ground but it's one of the most historical place in Indonesia because Mr.Sukarno designed it and built it. I love when they. Play the proclamation speech inside the building, the lift to go to the top is unbelievably slow so you need to be a bit patient"
