A museum dedicated to the Javanese traditional snack jenang (fudge-like sweet made from glutinous rice, coconut milk and sugar) recently opened its doors to the public in Kudus, Central Java.

According to tempo.co, the museum is part of a business and cultural center recently opened by jenang producer Mubarokfood Cipta Delicia.

The company itself was established in 1910.

In addition to exhibiting the company’s history, Jenang Museum displays equipment used to make the sweet treats through the decades. It also showcases brief history of the regency, featuring old photos of Alun-alun Kudus (Kudus town square), Kudus’ former regent in 1867, as well as dioramas of the regency’s traditional house and a miniature of its iconic Kudus Tower.

Mubarokfood Cipta Delicia director Muhammad Hilmy said the museum was designed to promote local culture and visitors could expect to learn more about the regency without actually visiting Kudus’ iconic spots.

He added that plans were in store to have local artists create regular events at the museum. (jes/kes)
