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.

I have never been before to a Museum dedicated to cigarettes and this was quite an experience. The historical part is very interesting and the viewing platform on top of the factory is amazing.

It is very clean, comfy, and classy. It feels like going back to the 90's. I always bring my foreign friends here.

Tiny museum about a cigarette manufacturer- the clove aromas hit you as you go in and the staff are smiley and helpful. The cafe is a beautiful Art Deco building, with great food and helpful staff.

This is a unique museum depicting the history of the cigarette company from its very beginning. At the end we can actually see the actual making of traditional Indonesian clove cigarette, from above a glass window. It is worth visiting the museum and best of all, it is free.

The museum is well designed and there is a open glass to see the people working on rolling the cigarettes but there was none when I visited them.

There's not much about this so called museum. Mostly, this museum is a collections of mementos from the founder of Sampoerna. So, from artistic value, it might not be much. But it is a unique spot for photography enthusiasts since they allow visitor to take pictures, even with model (as long as you don't set equipments there).
