A friend recommended this museum as a must-visit while in Solo.. I cannot agree less :) We arrived early in the morning and was admitted into the museum right away, it was still empty so we get to enjoy the display at our own pace. Our guide was very knowledgeable and warm. The latter is always a big plus for... More

The place is luxuriously decorated with crystal chandeliers, but only visit it if you are interested in getting some brief explanation about batik (which i am sure you can get it from googling / youtube) and the family owning the business. Some cloths being displayed are beautiful though.

The Danar Hadi museum was beautiful and the employees were amazing. I was so happy that everyone spoke fluent English and were willing to go out of their way to make my experience enjoyable. My tour guide was a very nice young man. Asti, the manager, was so kind that I now consider her a friend. Thank you so much... More

It is very good place to know batik and it's historical and story behind. The guideman has knowledge very good but i think he could increase more his knowledge especially for batik from other place as his reference. The museum actually can be more attractive if guest was given some local drink or something for a cup or two. Or... More

city central, all you need to know about Javanese basic batik is there. Basically created to make visitors serve more attention to any batik crafts they buy eventually at the gallery (if you are interested) Just be careful with your expectation since its a private museum, it might be too general for those history geeks.

This is private museum owned by Danar Hadi, one of the old pioneer batik producer in Solo. I must say that I stunt from the moment I step in the museum. Hige colection of Batik, some of them are almost 100 years old, and yet the natural colours still glittering with the glory from the past. The entrance fee is... More

This museum showcased an extensive collection of batik from many time periods and of many cultures, including pieces from the palace and pieces depicting stories like the little red riding hood. The museum guide was highly engaging and knowledgeable in batik, she shared wonderful stories about batik and the meaning of each pattern.
