National Museum of Indonesia set for major revamp

Jakata-based Aboday won a competition to revamp the ailing National Museum of Indonesia, which is housed in a Dutch colonial building from 1862.

Currently the museum contains 145,000 artifacts and artworks, the largest of its kind in South East Asia, yet is suffering from poor visitor numbers.

The architect introduced new activities along a corridor, shaded by a giant canopy, including a bookshop, museum store, exhibition hall and various F&B outlets.

The revamp will also create an extra 10,000m2 of exhibition space to improved the currently cramped conditions.
