Museum Angkut - Batu

Entrance of Museum Angkut with Monique as a Model 

On my trip to Malang last month, I only have half day trip in Batu-East Java, it located just 15km away from Malang. First thing came to my mind was, "where should I go?, what should I do?". Luckily, I had accompanied by three other friends, two of them are travel blogger, Debby and Halim. Finally we planned to visit Museum Angkut, a new opened museum which has transportation collections, from bicycles to motorcycles, horse-drawn carriage to cars from many countries and manufacturer.

As a new favorite museum in East Java, this place most likely always crowded by visitors everyday, even in weekdays. We planned to enter Museum after 2 PM in the afternoon to avoid the crowd. Unlike other museum, Museum Angkut used multimedia and hi-tech gadget to support information for visitors. This idea attracts visitor to read the detail of the showcase effectively. At the entrance gate we will find many signs that visualized the place as an airport, from "Departures sign", "Baggage drop sign" and "flight connection sign" and yes first room of the museum was designed with hangar style. Instead of finding a line or aircraft, in this hangar we will find a lot of old cars, motorcycles, bicycles and horse-drawn carriage. Well, there are a few aircraft replica hanging above the hangar.  

Previously, Harley Davidson produced bicycles
I want to ride this :D 

Children can do drawing activity inside the doubledecker bus

Want to drive this car? you need to open its door from the front
Do you see the door handle?

This museum has many areas to explore by the visitors and I still can't believe that I spent 4 hours to do a museum tour. Beside hangar area, there are Jakarta Area, Gangster city, Las Vegas, Italy, France, German, England and Hollywood. There are a lot of good photo spots, so make sure you bring your camera along, but fee for camera apply. If you hungry, there is fast food restaurant inside the museum, visitors are not allowed to bring food and drinks. This museum open daily from 12 PM to 8 PM.
