The content was so-so, as one can finish the visit in 30 minutes. The café, though a bit pricey, is recommended.

Great history of founder shared at Sampoerna museum. An eye opener of how owner start small and became rich. Founder created job for many and funded the worker children to higher education. Thumb up Sampoerna.

the history of the tobacco is fantastic but they should allow people to roll their own cigarette which will make it more classic!
