- The Maritime Museum occupies a sturdy construction completed in 1774 and once used by the Dutch as a warehouse for storing spices and commodities. The historical building alone justifies a visit. The front section is probably the only ancient city wall surrounding Batavia (old Jakarta) still standing today. Inside, the museum showcases Indonesia's maritime history. Its modest collection includes traditional Indonesian sea craft and interesting photographs taken on board some steamships between the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
