Why Kite Museum of Indonesia is special ?

The Museum is a private museum far away from boring formal ambiance of most of the places you will find in Jakarta. The Kite museum is more hommy, cozy, colourful and a simply fascinating.


Its popularity among educational circles has prompted some local and foreign schools to make the museum a place of study, creativity, practice and recreation. Its hundreds of daily visitors include students from several international schools like the Jakarta International School, British International School andAustralian International School, which have sought to learn how to build Indonesia kites, knowledge that was in danger of being lost forever.



So far it has collected more than 350 kites from different parts of this country, as well as other countries. Its founder, art patron Endang W. Puspoyo, also known as a beautician, has been active in the kite-loving community since 1989.

What to explore at Kite Museum of Indonesia?

When you enter the museum, the museum assistant will bring you to a small theater to enjoy a movie about the history of kites in Indonesia and the kite festivals that are held in the country. After watching the movie you can tour the museum, which in fact is relatively small in size. While you’re there you can also do fun things like kite making, kite painting, making ceramics, umbrella painting, doing batik for ceramics, t-shirts and many more. For less than $2, you can enjoy all the collection and have a far more interesting day than you would have at the mall.

Who it's perfect for: Kids 3+, parents seeking a fun and educational family outing, tourists. Perfect when visitors are in town!

What else: We recommend you call the museum before making a visit, just to make sure that there is no group visit. Pick up some kites as presents from the museum's gift shop!

Tips for you

  • You should bring your own food because they only sell beverages, but they let you have a wonderful picnic under the trees.
    What to bring
  • Make sure you call ahead, because the place won't be so fun if there are too many visitors
    Reservation
  • The place is a bit difficult to find, But if you ever got lost, just give them a call and they will guide you through the phone.
    Location
  • For an extra Rp.50,000, you will get a kilo of pottery dough. The ever patient pak Nanang will encourage you to create things using the dough. He will color and oven your pottery and then you can pick it up after two weeks.
    Service
  • Before or after the tour, they will teach the adult to make a simple kite by glueing rice paper to a bamboo frame. For the kiddies, they simply do some coloring and then the tour guide will put on the frame. The guides are friendly and informative. They patiently tell story about the amazing collections of the museum.
    Things to do
  • The museum also offers the facility to make your own ceramics and wayang (typical Indonesian shadow puppet for theatre) with personal assistance.

This museum is unique and has a variety of kites from around the world...from very large kites to miniature kites...the kites are made of different materials like dry leaves,batik cloth,etc...also kites that can make music...kids will enjoy the kite workshop where they can make their own colorful kites....they show a short video about the kite festival that happens every year in Indonesia ...it is a well maintained private museum...this place is in a village in South Jakarta and it took more than an hour for us to reach there from Central Jakarta...finding the place will be a little difficult if we are not familiar with that area...only the local people will be able to give exact directions.

An amazing place. As a family we enjoyed the museum by observing the kites from across the Indonesia and the world. Peaceful environment and you could make your own kite. I would recommend to all travellers and to all those living in Jakarta to visit this place atleast once.

Several rooms filled with multiple kites - some entered in competitions. It was fun to see the designs and designers. In a city with limited museums, it was enjoyable to visit a museum with a different twist!
