One of Trowulan's central attractions is
the new Archaeological Museum, to be found on the western
side of Segaran pool. Officially opened in 1987, it was
built for the purpose of displaying and preserving the ever-increasing
number of historical treasures discovered in the vicinity
of the old Majapahit capital.
Covering a spacious area of some 57,625 square meters, this
new site accommodates the collection of the old Trowulan
Museum, as well as the bulk of the stone sculpture, which
used to be housed in the museum of Mojokerto. Among the
objects on display, a few deserve special mention, notably
the famous portrait statue of Airlangga as Wishnu on Garuda,
from Belahan Temple; a winged figure which is said to portray
the legendary king of Blambangan, Menak Jinggo; and a part
of a temple from Ampelgading, Malang, displaying the story
of Samodramanthana in finely carved relief.
Trowulan Museum is place to keep the ancient things of Mojopahit
Kingdom. It is also a place study especially for the pupils
and the students. Beside that it can also be functioned
as the recreation place.
