Kite Museum (Museum Layang-layang Indonesia)

Address : Jl. H. Kamang 38, Pondok Labu, Jakarta Selatan
Telephone : +62 21 765 8075

This museum features all kinds of kites. Kites were
first popularized nearly 3000 years ago in China. However, the question of when the first kite was invented, has not been answered yet. A drawing on the cave walls of Muna in Sulawesi has stirred up the discussion that kites may have been flown long before that.

With an entrance fee of Rp.10.000,- (which is a bit higher than the normal entrance fee for museums in Jakarta), you will be assigned a guide who explains the various kites in the museum. Also included in the fee is a lesson on kite making & watching a short film on kite flying.

The museum also provides workshops for making batik & ceramics.


Traditionally, kites were made out of leaves



Traditional Kite from Bali



Traditional Kites from Sumatera



"Paired Kites" from Kalimantan (left is female, right is male)



Creation Kites (Modern)



Devices to help manoeuvre the creation kites



Look at how small these kites are! Smaller than the mobilephone chain
