Merapi Volcano Museum

Museum in Kaliurang & Kaliadem

This impressive museum is located in a striking angular structure that resembles a volcano. Exhibits dedicated to Merapi include a scale model, which demonstrates eruptions from the 18th century until today and how they altered the mountain's shape. There are vintage seismometers on display, along with a motorbike excavated from molten ash. There's an earthquake simulator, a cinema screening the story of the 2010 eruption (tickets 10,000Rp) and profiles covering volcanoes of Indonesia and the world.
