Good collection of batik and excellent English speaking guide. The guide takes you through the types of batik designs and the batik making process.

This is my second visit, but the first visit with family. It has a good guide, Mr. Rais, we need to give him a good credit for his concise and knowledgeable exploitation. Anybody who would like to learn about batik, need to come.

Beautiful museum with lots of nice batik! Biggest collection of Java (and as suggested by the museumguide even of the world). Lots of explenation about all the prints and different patterns - really worth a visit!

This was very well laid out and a pleasure to visit although it was not possible to look at the batik making processes which was a shame. There was also a great shop with very reasonable prices - there are branches in Jakarta and Surabaya.

I was curious about Batik Danar Hadi and joined the museum visit, not realizing it was a guided tour. It was a very comprehensive enrichment on batik, although being Sunday they omitted the mini batik workshop. I feel so blessed that we have this valuable heritage from our ancestors. For anyone interested in learning about batik and its history in... More

I visited this only because I had extra time in Solo. It was 35k per person. Before visiting I didn't understand why batik was popular at all, and even though I was visiting I thought it would be a waste of time. I was pleasantly surprised. We got a guided tour, and our guide was excellent and had perfect English.... More

Solo is known for the quality of its batik and apart from many batik stores of high quality, this museum is one of the best both for the clothes it has but mainly because they have specialise in the lengthy history of the Sultans and their craftspeople designing many varieties. The tour was also in English. The displays are very... More
