Overview

This museum is dedicated to the prominent Indonesian General, Ahmad Yani, who was murdered here, in his house, on the night of the 1965 coup-attempt. He was born in 1922, participated in the War for Independence and became a general in 1962. The house is preserved as it was, with Yani's belongings on display. This serves to highlight the terror of that fateful night. A statue of the revered figure greets visitors as they come to pay their respects and celebrate his bravery. Do take off your shoes before entering.
