Museum of death

If you are travelling to Indonesia be sure to try to visit the country’s museum of death, at Surabaya, East Java. The museum has depictions of how some communities treat corpses. You can even pay to take part in the museum’s forensic anthropology identification course.

In the first room there is a replica of a grave in Bali’s Trunyan cemetery, with a real body inside a triangular bamboo structure.
