If you need a break from the temples of Prambanan and Borobudur, this is the place for you. Quirky with all kinds of artwork by the man and his relatives - you will be astounded how talented his whole family is. The whole place is also psychedelic - like the house of an eccentric genius. Check the signposts and the swimming pool.This place rocks! Highly recommended.

I'd never heard of Affandi but we were drawn in by the astonishing building... the paintings were a revelation. In fact the whole thing was - WHY had I never heard of this man?? There were no other visitors and there was a sense of 'these could be better showcased, more made of the site' but we loved the feeling of having stumbled on a jewel and having it all to ourselves.

An outstanding displays of painting by a renown artist. Such collections are hard to come by. The offering of a free drink after the museum tour is a wonderful gesture of goodwill and sincerity.
