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.

must visit for travelers to Solo. try the restaurant good local delicacy. The Museum is quite boring but a visit to the factory is an eye opener. They should upgrade the factory , its like prewar and condition is so poor. Nevertheless the quality of the batiks is excellent must buy!!

I asked questions especially on Batik Prada (gold on batik) and modern as well as historical examples were shown with good history and explanation of technique. Then a very in-depth history of the museum collection was given with highlights of the most important and exceptional pieces.
