Fatahillah Museum contributes significantly to city's income
The Jakarta Post
The Jakarta Tourism and Culture Agency is targeting four museums in Jakarta to contribute Rp 2.9 billion (US$214,148) to the city's coffers by the end of the year.
As of this month, the agency has achieved 80 percent of its target with the Jakarta History Museum, popularly known as Fatahillah Museum at the Old Town area in West Jakarta, contributing the most.
Out of the total income, the museum contributed around 90 percent, while the other three made up the number with 10 percent, the agency's museum management head, Sri Kusmawati, said.
The other three museums are Joeang Museum, MH Thamrin Museum and Taman Prasasti Museum, all in Central Jakarta.
"So far the biggest contributor is still Fatahillah Museum," Sri said on Tuesday, as quoted by kompas.com.
Sri was upbeat that the museums’ contributions would be more than the initial target at the end of the year. She cited the 2016 realization when the agency received Rp 2.7 billion from the four museums, higher than the Rp 2.1 billion target.
Sri said that to meet the target, the agency would increase promotional efforts to some schools in Jakarta. (yon)
