7 Tips to visit the Museum MACAN in Jakarta.

There are several tips for visiting the Museum MACAN to be more comfortable. Here are seven tips to visit the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Nusantara in Jakarta.

1. Come on weekdays

With a visit on weekdays, you can avoid a longer queue and a quieter atmosphere to enjoy around 90 artworks compared to a weekend visit.

2. Visit in the morning

Visit MACAN Museum in the morning, according to the Museum opening hours. When the day passes, then the queue at the ticketing counter will be longer. If the visitor is too crowded, the Museum entrance will be temporarily closed until the visitors in the Museum are reduced or deserted. It is so that visitors are more comfortable when enjoying the artwork in the Museum.

3. Buy tickets online

By purchasing your ticket online, you will be spared from the long queue when you are in front of the entrance ticket counter. You just have to print the ticket you bought and scan the barcode at the museum entrance

4. Do not come with an empty stomach

Make sure your stomach is filled when visiting the museum, as there are no heavy food vendors around the museum site. If you are hungry, you must exit the building and look for food outside the area.

5. Wear Comfortable Outfit

The room inside the museum is quite cool, if you do not stand cold, do not use sleeveless and shorts. Make sure you wear comfortable footwear. When visitors are very crowded we can stand in line for more than an hour to be able to take photos in the most desirable artwork in this museum, the Infinity Mirrored Room by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama.

6. Portrait ready camera

Due to the visitor queue consideration, you are given only 30-45 seconds to enjoy the art of Infinity Mirrored Room by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, use your best time possible, and prepare your camera.

7. Enter the room yourself into the Infinity Mirrored Room

With the limited time allotted, you better enter the room yourself than entering the two with your spouse or friends. In the room there are 1 officers who guard but according to the museum rules, we can not ask for help to photograph us. So smart-just look for a nice corner photo.
