A must see if visiting Old Town. It is located just before the Old Town complex. The garden and surroundings are well maintained. Sometimes the complex is used for wedding and exhibitions. The building itself is magnificent.

This elegant building was, in the 18th century, the residence of the Governor General of the Dutch East Indies trading company. In 1992 the building was renovated and defined as a cultural heritage. Today is a museum and it is used as a venue for the events and exhibitions.
