The museum is not so big, therefore, it will not bore you to death. It has ample information for you to know about the man who started his fortune selling, then manufacturing tobacco. You can view the workers. There is a small gift shop. There is also someone available to tell you its history. Beside the museum is a small... More

though it is more like company and family museum, yet no harm to visit it. You can find "pretty" items in the museum. You can browse around and free to take pictures. In working hour, you can view the kretek ciggarete workers work. It is interesting since they do it manually yet in a professional speed. Some occasion they ll... More

In here, you can get many photoshoot location, there are many couples who get pre-wedding photoshoot in this building, you also can get some short tour to see the history of Sampoerna foundation. You can also dine in the sampoerna cafe which offers simple western food, but the taste is only average level, not so tasty and not so bad.... More

I agree with the reviews and so will you if you are a smoker and like the clove cigarette. Interesting history; still hand-rolled; good batik rooms attached; lovely restaurant art-deco and with art work with all subjects smoking of course! Now, of course, the multi-nationals - like all over the world - have bought the national capitalists, so owned by... More

Surabaya doesn't have so many attractions for sightseeing, so this location is a must and even free. You see the history of planting tobacco and of the company. It's not so big, so you won't spend a long time there. The building and it's interior is nice, you can see see even an old printing machine from Heidelberg (Germany). From... More

Situated in "old Surabaya", building stately Dutch colonial style built in 1858 and is now a historic site that continues to be preserved. This building was previously used as an orphanage managed by the Dutch, then purchased in 1932 by Seeng Tee, the founder of Sampoerna, with the intent to use a first Sampoerna cigarette production. Today, the building still... More

They just ignore you maybe because im asian and don't look rich. Except for the guard (satpam) who was nice and polite. Staff at cafe were equally bad. I had to wait and wave to be served. Food was below satisfactory.
