" Located in east belitong and took about 1 hour 20 minutes ride from the airport. This museum has instagramable colorful spaces and various excerpts of literary works from Andrea Hirata and other well-known artists who have been inspired him. The entry fee is about IDR50.000 as an exchange of a pocket book of Hirata's famous novel, "The Rainbow's Troops" or "Laskar Pelangi" "

" Senang banget lihat desain museumnya yang warna warni dan memasukkan banyak literatur terkenal kayak The Bronte Sisters, Maya Angelou, Mitch Albom dll. Tapi sayaaaang banget, tata letaknya masih berantakan. Sebenernya museum literatur ini ditujukan untuk menumbuhkan minat baca kan ya, tapi karena tata letaknya kurang rapi dan terkesan agak maksa di sana sini, akhirnya kebanyakan orang ke sini buat foto foto aja. Saya awalnya berharap pas masuk ke ruang perpustakaannya saya akan melihat buku-buku oke semacam To Kill A Mockingbird, Catcher In The Rye, 1Q84, tapi sayangnya malah cuma ada novel romansa, majalah lama, dan buku-buku lain yang ngga saya kenal. Please please please, untuk siapapun pengelola museum ini, please dedicate this museum more for literature, don't become just another instagrammable place.

Nb: sori banyak mau hehehehe "

" As of April 2018: Ticket price is bundled with a small book about Laskar Pelangi (The Rainbow Troops) that does not summarize the entire book, but ends with the promotional tagline of “if you want to know more, buy the novel.” The book is in Indonesian. For that and the museum entry, price is IDR 50k. There is no option to buy only the entry ticket. (Previously, ~1 year ago, there was, and the entry price of the museum was IDR 2k, 4% of current price)

Inside, the exhibit is lacklustre. There were prints of the cover for Laskar Pelangi books in many languages, some newspaper/tabloid clippings about Andrea Hirata, summaries of books from other famous fiction writers (e.g. Coelho), and random literary quotations printed and hung on the wall. Also, you can see 1-2 paintings, and many movie posters. Overall, I’d say this place is more of a promotional/money making gimmick, definitely not worth the hype.

The only differentiating element are the colorful walls, but if you’re expecting fair pricing and quality exhibits, don’t get your hopes up. "

" It is a private collection of Andrea Hirata with the interior design looks like a common living house. The museum was divided into some pavilions: 1) Main Entrance have: guest room with pictures of kids actors Laskar Pelangi, reading room, kitchen (there was a small cafe with an old design, called: Kupi Kuli), 2) A small library 3) Playground 4) backyard.
It was satisfied to see the phrases collection and did a short reflections about our life. "

" Historical site in Belitung Island actually for Andrea Hirata, one of biggest writer in Indonesia. "

" Below expectations, the place is beautiful if all you wanted to do is to snap beautiful pictures. The museum doesn't really give you a new knowledge about literature and its mostly just a house with several first edition books, vintage stuff that you can find at any stores, and inspirational quotes from famous literatures. As a bibliophile, this place is good but not worth the price.
The entrance fee is IDR 50K (which is overrated in my opinion) and you'll get a pocket book of Andrea Hirata's most famous tetralogy, Laskar Pelangi. Sadly the pocket book is only in Indonesian and apparently its just an excerpt of a story inside the novel that I already owned. Pretty much disappointing especially since I was really excited about it. "
