Best batik in Solo. I had such a great time shopping here. Love the material and designs. The staff is a bit stiff though. We came in the rain and they didn't come and offer us umbrella though the staff was holding umbrella at the front door.

The ticket cost is IDR35,000 per person and you will be given a guide to take you around the 11 rooms where batik material is on display. It takes 45 mins to do the tour, and you are not allowed to take photos of the displays which are all panels of batik panels hung in a "L" shape with different... More

I visited the museum originally just to ensure my kids are aware about Batik and its rich history as one of the country heritage. It turned out to be a good visit, eventhough I knew some history about Batik, but the guide showed and told us more beyond it. It was worth time spending of ~1.5 hrs. The place is... More

It is a great place in overall. But way too much other tourist, that you can't really enjoy or learn. If you only have one hour for Batik, it is a great place for you.
