Ullen Sentalu is an interesting museum located in natural surroundings on the outskirts of Yogyakara and a visit will give you an understanding of Javanese culture, royal history and art as told through the accounts of ancient Javanese Princesses (and the odd King.)
The architecture of the museum itself is quite a sight having been made out of volcanic rocks from the region.
Exhibits feature various artifacts and old relics from the old royalty of Indonesia. The museum is filled with heritage, focusing largely on ancient Batik - a form of tapestary documenting the history the Javanese through storytelling.
The stand out experiences all involved some locals: the walk in the Bali rice fields with a guide, the trip to the Borobudur eco-village and ride in a horse cart which also charmingly had us playing the Gamelan with local kids.
