It is located in the former national army headquarters in Yogyakarta.
Dharma Wiratama Museum is officially known as the Dharma Wiratama Central Army Museum (Indonesian: Museum Pusat TNI AD Dharma Wiratama).

The building which now houses the museum was constructed by the Dutch colonial government in 1904 as an official residence for the official in charge of managing plantations throughout central Java. During the Japanese occupation of the Dutch East Indies from 1942 to 1945 the building was occupied by the Japanese forces, which used it as a military barracks.
