The New Logo of National Museum of Indonesia

The New Logo of National Museum of Indonesia

National Museum of Indonesia is previously known as Museum Gajah to most Indonesian, as you will find gajah (elephant) statue standing in front of this museum. The elephant statue was once given by King Rama V (King Chulalongkorn) from Thailand during his visit to Batavia (the old name of Jakarta) in 1871.

However, as the number of collection in Museum Gajah increases, Indonesian government wants Museum Gajah to be known as National Museum of Indonesia. Hence, on May 30, 2013, they officially replaced the elephant statue that has been standing for 235 years with the new statue that is chiseled by Nyoman Nuarta.
