Soekarno. In this place, tourists can find out various interesting stories in the life journey of Soekarno.

The Sukarno Center building was built in 2008. The existence of this museum is an effort to honor the figure of Soekarno is one of Indonesia's national heroes. Especially because Soekarno's role in the struggle for Indonesian independence was very huge.

As the name implies, in this place tourists can find a collection that is closely related to Soekarno. The types of collections also vary. You can find souvenirs obtained by Soekarno from neighboring countries, paintings of Soekarno fans, or quotes from Soekarno's heartfelt speeches.

Because it is in Bali, it is not surprising that the architectural design of the museum is designed with Balinese elements. For example, when you arrive at the front of the building, there are 2 gates in the form of a golden carriage replica. Now, when you enter the interior, you can see the acculturation of Balinese and Javanese culture. This is evidenced by the existence of Javanese Sinden chants voiced in the museum area.

Given, the figure of Soekarno is often associated with mystical elements in Java. In addition, The Sukarno Center Tampak Siring was also formed in such a way that it had a workspace that was completely built as a replica of Soekarno's workplace.
