Cultural Conservation

If you want to find out more about the culture in Sumba then head to the Cultural conservation and Learning Institute which is located in Southwest Sumba.

This museum has a range of galleries dedicated to showcasing artifacts from different tribal communities in Sumba and you will also find some reconstructions of traditional houses as well as ornate tombstones from the days of old that can weigh an impressive 30 tons.

One of the other big draws at the museum is that they also offer trips out to visit some of the local villages if you want to see how people have lived in Sumba for centuries.
