Up to 125 Koreans reportedly visited the museum, which has started to highlight the latest technology in its exhibition during the opening day of the Asian Games.
One Korean visitor, Kim Hyun-suk, said he was very happy to be able to visit the museum as he gains much information regarding the history of Jakarta and Jakarta as the host of Asian Games.
“This place is rich with history; we are happy to visit it. We are also very impressed with the opening ceremony of the 2018 Asian Games,” he told Antara.
