Fodor's Review

In the same courtyard as the Prinsenhof Museum, the Nusantara has a colorful collection of ethnographic costumes and artifacts from the Dutch East Indies—most of it is ill-gotten gains from the 17th century by members of the Dutch East India Company. A large Javanese gamelan (percussion orchestra) takes center stage inside, and is surrounded by Indo-European batik, Hindu statuettes, shields and intricately carved spears, diamond-encrusted daggers, wayang kulit

(shadow puppets), and a beautifully carved tomb. Other displays chart the history of the spice trade.
