If you are interested in Batik, this museum is worthy. Even me, it was the first time I see some original batiks came from late community of Holland in Indonesia and also antique genuine ones. The interior of the museum is also very beautiful showing a traditional prosperous and decorative touch.

One of Indonesia's finest Batik (Javanese traditional clothing) makers. A museum dedicated to traditional batik-making is located at the back of House of Danar Hadi showroom. A must visit in Solo.

It looked pale compare to the collection that... More

When Asti, the manager of the museum section, found out we visited because of the number one position on TripAdvisor, she personally guided us instead of letting us wait for the next tour. She was a very good guide, with high standards and professionalism. Thanks Asti for your hospitality! The collection is comprehensive, with good examples of traditional styles from... More

This was an excellent museum and the experience was enhanced by an informative guide. Our knowledge of batik was limited so we found the whole thing fascinating. Some of the peices on display were absolute master pieces. We did not feel that the lack of a working display of batik making diminished the experience. We just went to one of... More

It's very interesting journey to visit Danar Hadi. Full histories in the museum. At the end, we can visit the factory. We can appreciate the process of making batik and know how difficult to make batik. We can buy the good batik at the showroom. Very interested shopping to know how n what you will buy.

The Batik Museum Danar Hadi is a must see in Solo! It is a very elegant place in which the history of batik is masterfully displayed! I had the honor of having as the tour guide the supervisor of the museum, Ghea, who is very experienced and knowledgeable. However, all museum staff is very well prepared! In conclusion, whether you... More

This museum is a 'must see' in Solo. The entrance fee includes a guided tour. The Guide spoke great English and really knew his stuff. All the batiks were amazing and there is a great part of the museum which shows each of the steps in the batik making process. At first I was unsure would I enjoy the museum,... More
