The Asian-African Conference held in Bandung on 18 – 24 April 1955 became a very important event in the history of Indonesian foreign policy and a great occasion for the nation and the Government of Indonesia. It is so, since the conference was held only ten years after Indonesia announced its independence. Within a short time, Indonesians had their courage to propose as the host for such important international conference. The most important thing was that the conference ended successfully in formulating common concerns and in preparing operational guidance for cooperation among Asian African nations, as well as in creating world order and world peace. The conference bore the Dasasila Bandung, which became the guideline for the colonized countries in fighting for their independence. It also became the fundamental principles in promoting world peace and international cooperation.
In fact, the spirit of the Asian-African Conference becomes guidance and basic motivation, not only for Indonesian foreign policy but also for Asian African Countries. It also enhances the level of cooperation among Asian African nations, so that it makes their roles and influences in international cooperation become more active and more respected and creates awareness to motivate young generation of Indonesia and Asian African nations in order to play better roles and to gain higher prestige.
In order to achieve the above-mentioned, it is important if the Asian-African Conference with its event was maintained eternally in a museum where the conference was held, Gedung Merdeka, Bandung, a city that is considered as a capital city and a source of inspiration for the Asian African nations.
As a Minister of Foreign Affairs (1978 – 1988), Prof. Dr. Mochtar Kusumaatmadja, S.H., LL.M. often met and got involved in some discussions with the Asian African Leaders. They frequently asked him concerning Gedung Merdeka and City of Bandung, which was the venue of the Asian-African Conference. The discussions were always ended by their wishes to be able to visit Bandung and Gedung Merdeka.
Inspired by desires to eternalize the Asian-African Conference as a culmination of the most successful Indonesian foreign policy, its spirit of which had spread all over the world especially in Asia, Africa and Non-Aligned Countries, and also motivated by the wishes of a number of Asian African Leaders in visiting Bandung, Prof. Dr. Mochtar Kusumaatmadja, S.H., LL.M. deliberated his initiative to establish a Museum of the Asian-African Conference in Gedung Merdeka.
The idea was forwarded in the meeting of the Committee for the Commemoration of the 25th Anniversary of the Asian-African Conference in 1980, which was attended by the Director General of Culture, Prof. Dr. Haryati Soebadio who came as a representative of the Department of Education and Culture. The idea was fully supported by other participants, including President of the Republic of Indonesia, Soeharto. Thus, one of the activities of the 25th Anniversary of the Asian-African Conference Committee was to materialize the idea.
The idea of establishing Museum of the Asian-African Conference had been materialized by Joop Ave, the Executive Chairman of the Committee of the 25th Anniversary in cooperation with the Department of Information, Department of Education and Culture, the Provincial Government of West Java, and Padjadjaran University. The technical planning and its execution were carried out by PT Decenta, Bandung.
Museum of the Asian-African Conference was inaugurated by President Soeharto on 24th April 1980 as the culmination of the 25th Anniversary of the Asian-African Conference.
The museum was named MUSEUM OF THE ASIAN-AFRICAN CONFERENCE, in order to memorize the venue of the Asian-African Conference that became the source of inspiration and motivation for the Asian African nations.
The Museum is established by the Government of Indonesia and it belongs to them. Based on the organizational structure and Joint Decree between the Minister of Foreign Affairs Number: 194/ 07/ VI/ 80/ 01 and the Minister of Education and Culture Number: 0185 a/ U/ 1980 dated on 25th June 1980, Museum of the Asian-African Conference was under the authority of the Department of Education and Culture and the management was coordinated by the Department of Foreign Affairs and the Provincial Government of West Java.
On 18 June 1986, the authority of Museum of the Asian-African Conference was returned by Department of Education and Culture to Department of Foreign Affairs, based on Joint Decree of the Minister of Foreign Affairs Number: 62/ OR/ VI/ 86/ 01 and the Minister of Education and Culture Number: 0419a/ U/ 1986. The museum is a museum of diplomatic political history of Indonesia.
