A well arranged museum of a masterful and daring artist and his family. Worths a visit. Interesting to see the style changes over the lifetime. Plenty of information in both English and Indonesian. Not much people, which is rather a pity. Free drink for the...More

The unusual buildings all housed the famous artist Affandi and his family, some of whom still live on the premises. They, in themselves are well worth a visit. The exhibition is displayed within three buildings and includes works from various members of his extended family,...More

Talking about Affandi, he was one of painting legend in Indonesia. His mastepieces worth a fortune, a lot of fine arts collectors would love to have one. But the museum is far from proper. It could be improved to be a world class destination.

The Affandi museum is interesting enough, but only about half of the paintings are from Affandi himself - the rest is from his family - wives, children, grandchildren. They were ok, but not as interesting as Affandi's own work. The museum is well kept. Close...More

Really enjoyed visiting this museum which houses the works of Affandi, one of Indonesia's most fascinating and talented artists. If you like the works of Van Gogh and even Salvador Dali then you will love Affandi! Would definitely visit again

I think you'd better to send an e-mail to the said museum to see whether the guide you requested is available or not.
