Fort Vredeburg Museum

Fort Vredeburg Museum - Namely one of the most famous Dutch heritage museums in Yogyakarta that has quite a long historical value, valuable and still survives. The Vredeburg Museum was historically founded in 1790 by Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono I at the request of the Governor of the North Java Coastal Directorate named Nicolas Harting. This place is located in the center of Yogyakarta. This museum was built with the aim of facilitating and controlling developments in the Palace. In the beginning, the fort was built very simply only in the form of a square with walls made of earth and reinforced with supporting poles made of coconut and palm trees. In the next period, the Dutch Governor named W.H Van Osenberg proposed that the fortress be built more permanently so that security was more secure.

From 1788-1816 the fortification and use of the fort were used perfectly by the VOC until it was finally de facto surrendered to Japan from 1816-1945 as the headquarters of the army, the company, the gunpowder depot and the Dutch and Indo-Dutch detention centers. Sampa in 1977-1992 in this period the status of the management fort was handed over to the Yogyakarta Regional Government to function as a tourist museum to date. In this museum has historical collections, among others as follows:

- Building Collection 

In this museum there are ditches or ditches made around the fort with the aim of defense against enemy attacks. However, because now the military system has progressed very rapidly, then this gutter is used as a disposal system only.

In addition, there is also a bridge that was once hanging is now replaced by a permanent bridge. For the walls of the fort that surrounds the complex is built with the main function as a defense, reconnaissance, storage of small cannon weapons up to hand weapons. There are three parts of the gate owned by the fort in the west, east and south. These three gates are made for facilities in and out of the Vredeburg fort complex. Then, in the middle of the castle there are also buildings that used to function as barracks for soldiers and officers. Which has now changed as military control. Finally, there is a monument to the March 1, 1949 General Offensive which is an expression of the anxiety of the Indonesian people and the military over what the Dutch and their allies did.

Diorama Collection 

The Diorama room that is inside this museum is divided into three parts, the Diorama I Room has 11 Dioramas, describing history from the Diponegoro War period until the Japanese subjugation in Jogja in 1825-1942. Room Diorama II there are 19 dioramas with historical events from the Proclamation to the Dutch Military Aggression I (1945-1947). Room Diorama III there are 18 dioramas with the events of the Penville Agreement to the recognition of the RIS sovereignty in 1948-1949.
