Whether you're Indonesian or foreigners, this museum must be visited. The museum is a showcase of more than 10,000 batik collection from the past until today. However, not all of the collections arw shown here. They provide guide that take us through the collection and explain everything clearly. This is very good for tourist. One thing that visitors should note,... More

Awakened in me the appreciation for the very profound learning available because of the vibrant energy of the place. What I loved about the place is the enthusiasm of Asti, the Asst.Manager who walked us through the very intense process of producing a batik, as well as travel back in time as she described how the batik fabric carry with...

We visited this wonderful place on May 1st so no Batik painting can be observed on the Labour Day. But it was really worth a visit because the exhibition was great and the guide spoke English and could answer all of our questions. We really learnt a lot here in order to be Batik smart buyers.

I love the whole compound, it's a lovely building with great collection in the museum. The display was beautiful, made our visit very worthwhile. I would suggest they give simple handouts to visitor about basic knowledge of batik patterns (the name & pattern) and how to take care of our batik clothes.

This is no doubt the best collection of batik I have ever seen. There are 11 rooms (if I remember correctly) filled with exhibits of exquisite quality, and it's very nicely set up. You can only visit with a guide, who will, however, give you lots of interesting information about the different patterns, colours, history etc. Unfortunately, the factory is... More

In this museum, you could find a lot of things about Batik, from how it's made and the variety of Batik in Indonesia. This museum offers you the experience of knowing how to make Batik and you could even try to make the pattern or drawing it using candle in the factory if it is available. Due to the process... More

This place is located at Slamet Riady, just at Citi Center, not too far from Sri Wedhari Park. The complex is relatively big with a museum, shop, and nice restaurant with historical ambience in it. It is privately owned and managed, and I must say for such a small museum, the management has done a great job making it to... More
