Thanks to this museum, I learned a lot about Batik, not only about history of Danar Hadi, but also about Batik in general, starting from overview about process to create Batik, types of Batiks, even about the subtle differences of Batik from Jogyakarta and Surakarta, something that I did not know, even as domestic tourist. Within the Museum complex, there... More

I found really really really beautiful batik there! And it's a lot! A well trained 'tour-guide' will amaze you with the story, not just about batik but about the culture, the history, the process, and the people who dedicated their life for the love of batik. Too bad, I'm not allowed to take any pic.

Though culturally rich, Indonesia has few impressive museums. I have been to so many with horrible lighting and little to no sense of arrangement or coherent, informative displays. This fine little museum is a happy exception. It was clean, well-lit, logically laid out, and deeply stocked with interesting contents. Our guide was fluent in English, engaging and funny. He really... More

My brain was full of batik patterns after leaving this museum. Our guide spoke flawless English and her knowledge of batik across the ages was quite evident. We learned about batik from Solo and batik from Yogyakarta and the mixture of the two and batik with Chinese influence and batik from during and after Dutch colonization. It's a great story,...

I went to visit Solo for one day and it is the first museum that I visited, which I am glad I did. The museum (privately owned by Santoso the founder and owner of Danar Hadi) is a proper museum and is very well maintained. It has out-of-my-mind collection of Batik, from the early Batik (very very old) of Solo... More

Located at the city center....The staff especially the lady ( perhaps she is the manager there ) is very friendly. The museum has a vintage restaurant and batik store next to it.
