Originally built as a private residence, this splendid Dutch-style mansion and its annexes were built by Reinier de Klerk, before he became Batavia's governor-general in 1777. The property changed hands several times and finally functioned as a national archive center until the mid-1980s. Set in landscaped gardens, the building provides visitors an insight into the luxurious lifestyle of the well-heeled Dutch colonists in the 18th century. Since its reopening in November 1998, it serves as a public space for cultural events and the exhibition of the nation's archives. Admission is free.
