Lampung Provincial Museum


Housed in an imposing building that incorporates a traditional design, the Lampung Provincial Museum is a bit of a mixed bag. It covers everything from neolithic relics to stuffed animals, with standout pieces from the Sriwijayan-empire era. It's 5km north of central Bandar Lampung; take a grey angkot (4000Rp) or Go-Jek (around 3000Rp).
