The Ministry of Tourism (Indonesian: Kementerian Pariwisata, formerly Kementerian Pariwisata dan Ekonomi Kreatif) is the ministry in Indonesia concerned with administration of tourism.

In the 1990s tourism was a directorate, not a ministry. [1]

When it became a ministry its name was the Department of Tourism, Posts and Telecommunications (Indonesian: Departemen Pariwisata, Pos dan Telekomunikasi) which concerned with administration of postal and telecommunication as well.[2]

The name changes to become Department of Tourism, Art and Culture (Indonesian: Departemen Pariwisata, Seni, dan Budaya) on Soeharto's Seventh Development Cabinet after releasing the Posts and Telecommunications responsibility to Department of Transportation. It becomes the State Ministry of Tourism and Art (Indonesian: Menteri Negara Pariwisata dan Kesenian) and changes to become Department of Tourism and Culture (Indonesian: Departemen Kebudayaan dan Pariwisata) on Gus Dur's National Unity Cabinet. It become the State Ministry of Culture and Tourism during Megawati's presidency (Mutual Assistance Cabinet) and change the name again to become Ministry of Culture and Tourism during the first term of Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono's presidency (United Indonesia Cabinet). It changed into Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy during the second term (Second United Indonesia Cabinet) of Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono presidency as the cultural responsibilities was transferred into Ministry of Education and Culture.

On 2014 the ministry name changes to become the Ministry of Tourism after President Joko Widodo announce the cabinet line up.[3] Joko Widodo plan to spin off the Directorate General of Creative Economy into a new separate organisation which will be named Creative Economy Agency (Indonesian: Badan Ekonomi Kreatif).
