Loved the museum and being able to see people actually working making the cigarettes. The restaurant next door just made the whole experience that much more complete

it's a museum/cigarette factory/souvenir shop/cafe/free tourist bus pool combined in one place. Try the free bus tour with different routes provided, totally free of charge and guided with English/Bahasa Indonesia speaking guide.

It feel like having a city tour in neighboring country. Buses are custom made for tourist, equipped us with leaflet and booklet about historical place n Surabaya. And the Sampoerna tour guides also take us visit Historical places frm when Sampoerna histories arises.

This was another fabulous Authentic Java Tour outing! We took our teenaged daughter along, and we all benefited from the historical perspective and expertise of our guide. The House of Sempoerna is not to be missed! As you observe the workers making the wonderfully scented clove cigarettes, their rapid movements are amazing. The relatively small, well-kept museum is quite interesting.

You'll get to understand the history of Sempoerna and witness the dying trade of hand folded cigarettes. Remarkable how the staff were akin to robots producing and packing the cigarettes by hand.

A nice place to learn about the kretek business. Beside the museum, there's a small cafe. A good place to rest and enjoy a cuppa.

We were greeted at the door by a very polite we'll spoken young man who offered to be our guide through the museum. The tour was very interesting... More

Poor Security, watch your belongings because the cctv that they have is no good than only a formality.

Cafe Sampoerna with the Museum Sampoerna is a good place to entertain your guest. The foods they offer is wonderful for East and West taste. So you can find very nice steak or even local food like Gado-Gado (green salad with peanut sauce). And the decoration of the restaurant is amazing. All old advertisement hanging on the wal, old clock... More
