This is a museum specially dedicated to informing and educating people about the massive Merapi eruption that occurred in 2010. The disaster has taken the lives of many people living in the villages around the volcano.

During the lava tour, you will pass through some villages affected by the Merapi eruption. Some other places you can visit during the tour include Alien Stone and Bunker (many people were found dead in the bunker during the Merapi eruption in 2006).

The Syailendra Dynasty that ruled ancient Java had connections to many countries in the world, including India where Buddhism was born. For more than 1000 years, Borobudur Temple has stood firmly, passing the test of time. This magnificent temple is also the largest Buddhist temple in the world.
