  • The Dutch-made stage house that has been built over 100 years is very unique. The window is just about 2 meters. So also with the door of his house. The funeral still uses the doorway. The building is made of large wood. The buffering is a stone construction made more than one metre. So that children can play underneath it safely. I've lived in buildings like this. But it is located in Dahor II No. 15. It is flat with the ground, because my former house was now established apartment for employees of Pertamina. Currently, this building is left by the government of Balikpapan to become a cultural heritage. Where we can see the paintings of some of the building tempo Doeloe depicting Balikpapan past. We can see the house of wards that is the home of Pertamina employees, shaped like a long ward. There lived many families with various stories and problems. Do you know much about Balikpapan? Yuk! Visit Dahor Hritage. Oya... Next to it there is also a building created for the library.

  • This is a historical house that now use as a museum. It used to be a house of BPM (Bataafsche Petroleum Maatschappij) Employee House, and now is part of Pertamina Housing Area. Dahor is name of this area. Actually all Dahor Area consists of various kind of wooden house with similar architecture. But, it diminished for Pertamina Apartement. This house is preserved as part of Balikpapan Heritage. This museum have various photo about BPM activity in Balikpapan, Balikpapan Historical Photo, Balikpapan Old Map, and World War II documentation, since Balikpapan also part of the targeted area during WWII. If you come to this museum, it is better to contact the museum before you come. So, you will get a guide that explains the details about Balikpapan history. The museum entrance is free.
  • A well preserved traditional house that you can enjoy with your family or friends. There are some old photographs that show us the history of Balikpapan.
