Jakarta has many choices of tourist attractions that tourists can visit.
In addition to natural tourism-themed attractions such as mountain tours, waterfalls, flower gardens, and so on, Jakarta also has several tourist attractions with the theme of art and culture.
One of the tourist attractions in Jakarta that carries the concept of art and cultural tourism in question is the Museum of Modern And Contemporary Art in Nusantara or better known as the Macan Museum.
If you are a lover of works of art or things that are full of cultural values, then this place is not to be missed.
So, what are the interesting things that you can find in this tourist spot in Jakarta? Come on, see the full review below.
This place is one of the tourist attractions that is always crowded with tourists, both from Jakarta and other cities in Indonesia.
Not only adult tourists, millennials it turns out that many people like this place because of some
spot the art exhibition in it is enough instagramable
as a photo location.
Art exhibition events are usually held in a not so long time.
For example, in 2018, this museum held an exhibition of works of art created by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama for 5 months, from May 2018 to September 2018.
This is the tradition in this place. After the exhibition of artwork by an artist is over, at another time the artworks on display will be replaced with works of art from other artists.
This is what makes the works of art that are always there fresh and not boring.
But don’t assume that after the exhibition is over, the museum will be empty.
Of course, in this museum there are still hundreds of works of art that fill the museum permanently. The number is currently recorded at no less than 800 works of art created by world-class artists.
The works of art on display are not only the works of artists from Indonesia. In fact, 50 percent of the total artwork in the museum is the creation of foreign artists.
Some foreign artists whose works you can find there include Yayoi Kusama from Japan, On Kaware from Japan, Lee Mingwei from Taiwan, and Arahmaiani from America.
This museum is located in a strategic place. This museum is located on Jln. Struggle No. 5, Kebun Jeruk, West Jakarta, DKI Jakarta.
If you have been to Kidzania Jakarta, then you only need about 15 minutes drive to get to the Museum. Or if you’ve been to the Jakarta Aquarium, then the distance will be closer, which is only about 13 Kilometers there.
Meanwhile, if you access it from the center of the capital city of Jakarta, the travel time is only about 25 minutes by driving 15.3 kilometers.
Then regarding the means of transportation that you can use, apart from private vehicles, you can also use public transportation such as trains or Transjakarta.
If you use the train, then after arriving at Palmerah station, you can continue the final journey to the museum using an online motorcycle taxi.
Then if you go there using Transjakarta, the route is from the Harmoni department to Lebak Bulus, and get off at the Kebon Jeruk Busway stop. Well from here, you only need to walk as far as 300 meters to arrive at the location.
For those of you who need a map of the location and route, below is a map of the location of the Macan Museum that we took from Google Maps.

Here are some rides or spot interesting and instagramable which you can find there.
Spot it contains artwork created by Yayoi Kusama. The object is several yellow balls with a fairly large size, the surface of which is decorated with black polka dots.
Spot This is not only attractive to the eye, but also quite unique as a photo location.
My Eternal Soul
In this area there are about 500 paintings that were also made by Yayoi Kusama. Paintings patterned with unique pictures that exist in spot My
Eternal Soul this is also very beautiful if made background photo.
Infinity Mirrored Room
Of all spot available, spot Infinity Mirrored this is usually always crowded with visitors.
Spot this is real instagenic. Here you will find a dark room, whose walls are filled with glass and colorful balls.
The mirror is arranged in such a way, producing an infinite number of glowing ball images. Photos produced in spot This is of course very beautiful and unique.
But unfortunately, you have to really take advantage of the time when entering this area. because, each visitor is only given about 20 seconds to be inside Infinity
Spot this is also actually no less beautiful than spot
Infinity Mirrored Room. Here you can take pictures with background a room whose walls are painted white, decorated with various shapes and colors of stickers.
The Letter Writing Project
Different from spot
which are generally more interesting as a place to take pictures. Spot The Letter Writing Project which is the work of Lee Mingwei offers something very unique.
As the name implies, here you will find lots of letters written by visitors, which are said to be sent to the destination address by the museum if visitors want it.
Meanwhile, if the visitor does not want his letter sent or a letter written without a destination address, then the letters will be left to be read by other visitors.
The museum is open every day for tourist visits. As for the time of the visit, the manager implemented two sessions, namely the morning session starting at 10.00 – 14.00 WIB, and the afternoon session starting at 14.00 – 19.00 WIB.
Price of admission
The price of admission tickets that must be purchased by visitors may seem a bit expensive for some people. But believe me, the nominal will be comparable to what you can find inside.

- Adult Ticket – Rp. 100,000 per person
- Student Ticket – Rp. 90,000 per person
