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!

If you'd told me before this holiday to Java with the family from Bali that one of the highlights would be visiting a tobacco making company's museum I would have laughed. I'm a museum curator by profession and I expected very little, especially in light on my views about the tobacco industry. However I must honestly say I was really... More

I hate cigarette smoking so much. However, I was curious what Sampoerna Museum offered. This museum shows the history of Sampoerna (cigarette company), inclucing the family history and some achievements they got. I can say that this museum is well maintained and clean. Thus museum is the best among others in Surabaya. At the end, I hope you can enjoy... More

Sad to see so many people making 500 cigarettes per hour by hand, but at least they are earning an income.
