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.

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
