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

An excellent museum and shop. It's best to go early and then come back later and eat at the wonderful restaurant.

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

The process of making batik is involved and a real education. This museum has ancient batik, beautifully displayed and is quite informative. Lovely restaurant next door.

Entrance includes your very own tour guide, who thoroughly explains Batik history to modern day batik production. The tour took us two hours, so schedule accordingly.

We arrived in Solo onthe train from Yogyakarta and after checking in at our hotel we jumped into a taxi and headed for this museum. It truly is an amazing place, housing a Batik museum as well as a factory where you can watch the Batik process, either by hand or using copper stamps. The museum itself doesn't allow you... More
