People said that this is collections of international gifts for delegations for Soeharto (the Indonesia former and the longest serving President). The biggest gift (and the most lavish) is a bed carved with jade and other jewelry.Too bad the museum is dark and dusty. They should improve the lighting to makes the artifacts more dramatic.
