Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan is mulling over a plan to make entrance to museums in Jakarta free in a bid to lure more people. 

Anies said elementary and high school students holding Jakarta Smart Cards (KJP) would be prioritized in the policy he was formulating. 

“We want them not only go to a certain museum, but all 142 museums in Jakarta,” he told reporters  at City Hall in Central Jakarta on Thursday .

Anies explained that there would be a mechanism to regulate the timing of visits to prevent everyone visiting at a particular time. The time allocation of visitations would be categorized based on area, age and type of school.  

“Allocation times for visits is needed in a bid to ensure comfort. If it was free and unregulated, it would be full and make visitors uncomfortable,” he said as quoted by kompas.com. (fac)
