Virtual Travel to Wayang Museum and Komodo Islands

Just because you can’t go outside, it doesn’t mean you can’t travel. In the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak, it is indeed best for us to stay at home and avoid close contact with people. However, those of you with an adventurous soul can still enjoy the experience of traveling to Indonesia by taking virtual tours on Google Arts & Culture. This platform features content from over 1200 leading museums and archives, including those from Indonesia, who have partnered with the Google Cultural Institute.
There are many cultural and tourist attractions that you can virtually enjoy through Google Arts & Culture.

Wayang Museum
Walk through the Wayang Museum, which preserves a long-standing tradition of shadow puppet shows across the archipelago. Inaugurated on 13 August 1975, the building occupies the site of an old Dutch church, which got demolished in an earthquake in 1808. Later in 1912, a Neo-Renaissance-style building was constructed on the same site.
Located in the area of Old Town (Kota Tua), Museum Wayang has more than 4,000 various kinds of Wayang and puppets, which include Wayang Kulit (leather puppet), Wayang Golek (wooden puppets), Wayang Kardus (carton puppets), Wayang Rumput (grass puppet), Wayang Janur (coconut leafs puppets), and even Wayang Beber (scroll-painted Wayang). The museum also has a collection of Gamelan (traditional ensemble music of Java and Bali), masks, and dolls.
Komodo National Park
Good news, you can enjoy the beauty of Komodo National Park through Google Arts and Culture. Comprised of 29 volcanic islands, including the 3 major islands of Rinca, Padar, and Komodo, the vast and spectacular Komodo National Park is home to approximately 2,500 Komodo Dragons.
You can stroll along the shores of this tropical paradise to enjoy the great landscapes and even try to spot a Komodo lurking around the corner somewhere.
