The aim of the research is to study the existing condition of Sonobudoyo Museum in order to understand changes of the original design. Evaluation of all buildings in Sonobudoyo Museum focused on their functions. Method used in this study is descriptive-qualitative. Data and findings of field surveys were analyzed in order to find the architectural characteristics of the museum and its changes. There are four conservation actions to be recommended, which are (1) preservation of buildings as their original design, (2) repairation and restoration buildings, (3) demolition of unapropriate buildings, and (4) location of new buildings.
