This was an excellent museum and the experience was enhanced by an informative guide. Our knowledge of batik was limited so we found the whole thing fascinating. Some of the peices on display were absolute master pieces. We did not feel that the lack of a working display of batik making diminished the experience. We just went to one of... More

It's very interesting journey to visit Danar Hadi. Full histories in the museum. At the end, we can visit the factory. We can appreciate the process of making batik and know how difficult to make batik. We can buy the good batik at the showroom. Very interested shopping to know how n what you will buy.

In conclusion, whether you... More

This museum is a 'must see' in Solo. The entrance fee includes a guided tour. The Guide spoke great English and really knew his stuff. All the batiks were amazing and there is a great part of the museum which shows each of the steps in the batik making process. At first I was unsure would I enjoy the museum,... More

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

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.
