Built adjacent to the Jatim Park 1 that has a ethnic collection containing a variety of traditional costumes of the archipelago, a miniature temple, park study, a 3D cinema, swimming pool and many other exciting attractions, Jatim Park 2 is also adjacent to the tourist area of BNS.
The main building of Jatim Park 2 resembles the State Palace. The park area of contains a zoo and a museum. The zoo, with the name of the Batu Secret Zoo, is certainly more interesting and more complete than most zoos
The Museum of Jatim Park is the largest and most comprehensive wildlife museum with a collection of hundreds dioramas of insects, rhinos, White Lion, Tiger, African deer, various birds and beautiful reptiles. The animals in the museum collection are from various parts of the world: Europe, Africa, America, Antarctica and China.

The Jatim Park insektarium contains 5000 species of insects originating from various countries such as Peru, Papua New Guinea, Colombia, Malaysia, even from the island of Madagascar on the east coast of Africa and of course insects from forests in Indonesia. To get an idea of underwater life, there are also many fish diorama. Here you will be presented with life in freshwater such as rivers, lakes, swamps, and in sea water with different depths.
When you first enter the Jatim Park, you are welcomed by giant bird cage in which are ornaments like flowers and bird sculptures that is deliberately served as an object to be photographed. Jatim Park 2 is an outstanding work of art, combining paintings and wildlife in a contemporary international concept and is comparable to Genting and the Sentosa Island in Singapore.
Sometimes we are lazy to go to a museum, because we see a museum as a place with a collection of boring ancient objects, but Jatim Park differs in a good way and makes it fun to learn and know more about the wildlife. In Jatim Park 2 you can see the animals that became extinct by the many dioramas in the museum, you can also see various kinds of animals that are of course still alive in the Batu Secret Zoo, where the animals are kept as much in their natural habitat giving you a good view of their lives and makes it more fun to watch.
