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.
It was a little disconcerting to be met by a stranger who took our passports and $50 with the instruction of "wait here for me". However, the fact that he then fast-tracked up through customer and immigration was amazing - we felt like rock-stars!
