Museum Mpu Tantular

It's worth the hour (with traffic) it takes to reach Sidoarjo, south of Surabaya, to visit this small but fascinating museum founded by a German collector. The exhibits cover East Java's history and culture from prehistoric times and the Hindu and Buddhist eras through to the Islamic epoch, colonial era and modern times. Be sure to stroll the gardens to see statuary from temples around Surabaya and, inside, 12th- and 13th-century Javanese archaeological items and 18th-century German artifacts brought to Indonesia.
