Well worth a visit. The museum is worthwhile and provides an interesting introduction to a slice of Indonesian history. Try to go on a weekday or on Saturday morning when you can see women hand-rolling cigarettes on the factory floor. The museum has a nice shop on the top floor with a variety of Indonesian goods, including high-quality batiks. In... More

Free museum I ever been! If you're smoker or fan of Sampoerna this place perfect right for you! You can see history the man behind "Sampoerna", cigarettes maker tools, the marching band, etc. Or just miss "A mild" shirt? You can find it out here! Highly recommended if you visit on weekdays. Because you can see cigarettes making process. Sadly,... More

Unforgetable tobacco scent, every corner of the area. Food is good, the ambience as well. Lower level of the cafe you will find the tobacco manufacture.

How can the workers move their fingers so quickly? You will be given a free tour of the clove cigarette production site and few workers work close up. their dexterity is amazing and a slowed down fil will let you apprecate how they work. You can not take photos on this upper floor although you can in the small museum... More

I have not seen this type of tobacco making before, which makes it intersesting! But I guess there is no other similar factory elsewhere which allows you to see the way the tobacco cigarettes are made.

It's only a small museum, but really nicely done. the smell is amazing. I didn't know what to think about going to a tobacco museum as a non-smoker (reformed) but it's really interesting. One of the best presented attractions in Surabaya. And the cafe next door is fantastic!
