History edit

Jatim Park was founded in 2001 by Paul Sendjojo.

In addition, Jatim Park Group is also working with the Ministry of Environment and Forestry in developing Jawa Timur Park 2 content.

In 2016, a human body museum with the name "The Bagong Adventure" was inaugurated. This 1.4-hectare museum is the only human body museum in Indonesia. The museum is not only from the museum's content about the human body, but also from a collection of cadavers, or preserved human organs.
