Recommendation by Lemi

The Wayang Museum (Puppet Museum) is home to more than 4,000 puppets from across the country and beyond the shores. Its entire anthology of exhibits celebrates the ancient art of Javanese storytelling, from its wispy shadow puppets made of leather (wayang kulit) to fleshed out wooden dolls (wayang golek). A colorful cast of characters stand mutely behind the glass. On Sundays, they are taken out and brought to life through performances (from 10:00AM to 2:00PM). Inquire about workshops and score a new skill; the museum is fully committed to passing the passion and skills forward to a new generation of puppeteers!
