Jakarta, TOPNews Indonesia –
Taman Mini Indonesia Indah (TMII) is being discussed heavily after the Ministry of State Secretariat (Kemensetneg) took over the management of the Harapan Kita Foundation, which incidentally belongs to Sandalwood family.
The foundation is an organization founded by the late wife of President Soeharto, Tien Soeharto, and has been managing TMII since 1977.
Secretary of the Ministry of State Secretariat, Setya Utama explained that so far the Harapan Kita Foundation has never deposited TMII’s income to the state. This is one of the reasons for the government to take over the management of TMII.
The Minister of State Secretary, Pratikno previously stated that Yayasan Harapan Kita must hand back the management rights of TMII to the state. The government has given a transition period of approximately three months to submit various reports related to the management of TMII so far.
TMII has been known as a tourist destination for school children. In recent years, TMII has also been busy as a wedding reception venue because of the existence of mosques, hotels and meeting halls; At Tin Mosque, Hotel Santika, Hotel Desa Wisata, and Sasono & Puri.
Apart from the 33 platforms of Indonesian provinces, here are other interesting rides at TMII:
The museums that can be visited at TMII are; Museum of Indonesia, Museum of Soldiers, Museum of Indonesian Stamp, Museum of Heritage, Museum of Transportation, Museum of Electricity and New Energy, Museum of Telecommunications, Museum of National Sports, Museum of Asmat, Museum of Timor-Timur, Museum of Oil and Gas (GAWITRA), Museum of Indonesian Fauna Komodo and Reptile Gardens to the Information Museum.
One of the museums that must be visited at TMII is the Science and Technology Demonstration Center, where visitors can try out the demonstration tools of science and technology directly there.
There is also Skyworld, where visitors can learn about space through the exhibition hall to the planetarium.
During the tour, visitors will be accompanied by a guide, so don’t worry about getting lost.
