The development of the Batur Geopark Museum needs to be carried out after the Gunung Batur geopark was confirmed by UNESCO as a Global Geopark Network (GGN) on September 20, 2012. There is a uniqueness in the Batur geopark that is not shared by other geoparks, namely Mount Batur has two calderas.
What is special is that in caldera I, caldera II is formed. The caldera on Mount Batur is thought to have been formed after the occurrence of two major eruptions at 29,300 and 20,150 years ago. In caldera II there is also a crescent-shaped lake with a length of 7.5 kilometers and a width of 2.5 kilometers and is known as Lake Batur.
