Museum Wayang Kekayon Menjaga Sejarah Wayang

Yogyakarta memiliki sebuah museum yang menyimpan koleksi tentang seni dan budaya tradisional khusunya mengenai kesenian wayang. Museum Wayang Kekayon, sebuah museum milik perseorangan dengan tujuan untuk preservasi kebudayaan tradisional. Museum ini cukup mudah ditemukan, terletak tepat di pinggir jalan raya Wonosari yang merupakan jalur utama yang menghubungkan Yogyakarta dengan daerah Gunung Kidul. Museum ini mulai didirikan pada tahun 1990 oleh Prof. Soejono Prawirohadikusumo, seorang dokter spesalis kesehatan jiwa. Setahun kemudian, tepatnya pada 5 Januari 1991, museum ini diresmikan oleh Gubernur DIY dan kemudian resmi dibuka untuk umum. Hingga kini, pengelolaan Museum Wayang Kekayon ini dibawah naungan RM Doni Megananda, putra dari Prof. Soejono.



Museum Wayang Kekayon terletak di Jl. Jogja-Wonosari Km. 7 No. 277 Kecamatan Banguntapan, Bantul. Museum ini mengoleksi berbagai jenis wayang yang ada di Indonesia. Sebagai tujuan wisata seni budaya, museum ini juga memiliki fungsi pendidikan, wahana penelitian, dan rekreasi. Bangunan yang ada terdiri dari satu ruang auditorium dengan fasilitas audio visual yang digunakan untuk penjelasan awal bagi pengunjung.

Selain itu juga terdapat beberapa unit bangunan museum yang lebih kecil seperti gedung induk dengan arsitektur Jawa lengkap dengan kuncung, pendapa, longkang, peringgitan, ndalem dengan sarean tengah. Terdapat juga gedung pendapa yang luas dan dapat dipergunakan untuk berbagai keperluan seperti acara pernikahan, pertemuan, latihan kesenian, dan paket wisata makan malam sembari menyaksikan pagelaran wayang.

Wayang merupakan kekayaan luhur budaya bangsa Indonesia yang patut kita banggakan. Terbukti atas pengakuan UNESCO atas wayang sebagai warisan pusaka dunia. Di komplek museum wayang seluas 1,1 ha ini dapat disaksikan ribuan wayang dari berbagai jenis, seperti wayang Purwa, Madya, Gedhoog, 100 Kurawa, dan lain-lain.

Juga terdapat aneka topeng, berbagai busana wayang, bahkan patung Wayang Wong ukuran sebenarnya, hingga berbagai jenis wayang yang nyaris punah, seperti wayang Madura, Sadat, Golek Thengul, serta berbagai wayang bersejarah yang sudah ratusan tahun hingga wayang modern seperti Wayang Perjuangan/Suluh dan wayang Republik yang sekarang sering dipentaskan.

Museum ini juga nyaman dan asri dengan taman parkir luas serta pendapa megah untuk perayaan pernikahan, pameran, pertemuan, sarasehan, dan lain-lain.

    In this grand pattern of things you actually receive an A with regard to hard work. Where exactly you confused me was first on the details. You know, people say, details make or break the argument.. And it couldn’t be more true in this article. Having said that, let me reveal to you precisely what did do the job. Your authoring is actually incredibly persuasive and that is possibly the reason why I am taking an effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, although I can see the jumps in logic you come up with, I am not sure of just how you appear to connect your details which in turn produce the final result. For right now I will yield to your point however wish in the future you connect your dots much better.
