In the same compound as the Museum Negeri Banda Aceh is the Rumah Aceh, a fine example of traditional Acehnese architecture, built without nails and held together with cord and pegs. Inside is a typical traditional kitchen and living area with hanging crib. Other displays include wedding paraphernalia and a small weaponry collection. Out front is a huge cast-iron bell, the Cakra Donya, said to have been a gift from a Chinese emperor in the 15th century.
