Museum Kapal Samurrarska

Museum in Borobudur

This museum, dedicated to the importance of the ocean and sea trade in Indonesia, houses an 18m wooden outrigger, a replica of a boat depicted on a stone panel at Borobudur Temple. This boat sailed first to Madagascar and then on to Ghana in 2003, retracing 1000 ancient Javanese trading links and highlighting the original spice trade with Africa.
