This is an old Dutch Colonial building with a very interesting attraction, exhibiting the history of cigarette manufacture and hand rolling and packing. There is also a very nice cafe next door that serves local and Western food at a very reasonable price.

The high quality of the Museum surprised us--interest step back into the history of clove cigarettes (and the Sampoerna family that founded it). Watching the workers hand roll the cigarettes was fascinating.
