A walking distance from Maritime Museum is the Menara Syahbandar. This is a five-storey tower, was built at about the same time with the Maritime Museum. From the windows of the tower, the harbour-master could see the harbour and make necessary arrangement for enter-exit of the ships.

Now, the tower is a part of the maritime museum. On its wall hang a lot of pictures of the harbour and ships from the old days.

Some cannon was kept and displayed at the front yards of the tower.

Address: Jalan Pasar Ikan 1
Directions: Walking distance from the Maritime Museum and Sunda Kelapa Harbour. It has the banner said "Here where Jakarta begun"
