I am a fashion student who adores culture so much and this place taught me lots of new things about Batik. It's a private own museum so it's really well-maintained. They have bazillion of Batik collections which amazed me so much. The tour guide was also very friendly, he knows what he's doing, although he probably a little bit too... More

I learned a lot about batik. It is mostly about Solo and Yogyakarta batik. But they have other collections i.e. Lasem, Madura, Pekalongan etc. It has at least 10,000 items. Prepare a lot of times to see these clothes.

Do you like batik? Then have you found your museum! It's located behind the Danar Hadi store and you actually buy your tickets at the check out counter. I initially walked too far past the museum because I didn't realize they were one and the same. My guide was very nice and considering I knew nothing about the history, patterns,... More

Walked through with a tour guide was entertaining. I liked the shopping afterwards better and managed to find an item to bring back, even though I found the ricing higher than usual.

Although the stated time for a tour is 40 minutes, give yourself more time to slowly wander through as there is so much to look at. The souvenir shop is well priced for the... More
