I've never been inside this museum before. It is not a modern museum but very nicely decorated with Indonesian traditional style. The museum displays many beautiful textiles/cloths from all over Indonesian regions. Indonesia is not about Batik only but we do have other wonderful traditional cloths. Foreign tourists must not miss this museum! Pay a small fee of 5000 IDR... More

I've been here twice now. It's a beautiful museum with a lovely collection of all types of Indonesian fabric. The batik collection is particularly good. You can also take classes here if you are inclined.

I came here for a wedding invitation and surprised to find such interesting place in the busy jungle of metropolitan. It is an old historical dutch building. There are occassionally exhibitions related to textile and batik painting lessons.

It is a must go for Indonesian Woman who should learn about the textille in Indonesia. We can also learn how to make our own batik. To get there is quite easy. If you go from Slipi Junction, go straight through Jl. KS Tubun, after Hotel Santika Premiere Slipi Jakarta and RS Pelni, take the right side at the end... More

Being a fashion designer, the first spot i planned to visit was of course the textile museum, so i did. I had a very hard time looking for it,though, as it was tucked in a very busy street (a bit in the shabby part of the city) so even my cab driver had no clue how to get there, GPS... More

This musuem is another gem of Jakarta. However, its quite far in West Jakarta and takes an effort to get there. It houses many kinds of Indonesian textiles and is well laid out. It has frequent special exhibitions and live demonstrstions which I saw and was impressed. If you have the time do go to this colonial era building.

It's a little sad due to lacn of funding but presents the most wonderful display of textiles - mainly batik but some ikat. Occasionally has exhibitions of private collections which should not be missed. It has an information and teaching centre in a separate building as well as a small gallery shop. It is hard to find by taxi, but... More
