The Javanese Farmers Museum (Indonesian Museum Tani Jawa Indonesia) is a small museum located in the tourist village of Candran, in Kebon Agung, Bantul Regency, Yogyakarta. The museum is instrumental in the region.
The idea to establish a museum dedicated to the Javanese farming was started in 1998. At that time, traditional farming implements were collected to be preserved. The collection was done by the villagers in Candran village led by the chief of the village. On May 27, 2007, the museum was established; exactly one year following the major earthquake in Yogyakarta. The museum was built on a plot of land which belongs to Ki Condro, the founder of Candran Village. Funding for the construction of the museum was collected by the Regent of Bantul from villagers surrounding the area.
The goal of the museum is to enable visitors to learn about Javanese culture of farming and its arts, and to enable visitors to experience Javanese farmings by using the items. Javanese Farm Museum has been incorporated into the Supervisory Board of the Museums (BARASMUS, Badan Musyawarah Museum), an organization which oversees museums in Indonesia. The Javanese Farm Museum is supervised by the Indonesian Department of Tourism, Education, and Culture.
