Batik Museum

Recommend you take a little time and learn the fascinating history and techniques of producing batik fabrics. And definitely buy at least one batik short or blouse as a souvenir.

If you go to Solo this museum is a must place to visit. Its a private museum and in my opinion its the best batik museum in Indonesia. Execellent display, clean rooms and professional guide. Two thumbs up.

I placed a review a few months back, but it was removed, probably because I reviewed the shop section of this establishment, rather than the museum. So here we go again. Lets qualify this - this "museum" comprises two parts. The museum and the shop. The shop sells some beautiful, high end, silk batiks, with prices ranging from 2 million... More

We arrived here late evening and the museum was already closed. But you still can visit the area surrounding and the shop. Browse through the batik's product at the shop and maybe you would want to buy some for souveniers. There is a corner where you could read some information on Danar Hadi's batik.

The people who work there were very friendly and welcoming. The architecture of the building is so beautiful. The collections are impressive. Plus, we had the chance to experience the process of making batik. Would have given five stars if the guide (who was very nice and sweet all the time) was more confident speaking in English.

The ticket price is affordable IDR 35.000 for trudent and IDR 55.000 for adults. You's get your personal guide to take tour at the museum. The Batik collections are so adorable and nice, it will take for about 40minutes to strolling the museum.

We must not presume that we are fully familiar with our own culture. For me (and maybe our generation), we must earn our heritage by re-discovering it. House of Danar Hadi. A very well-curated personal museum from the batik empire itself, with a team of very eloquent and highly knowledgeable guides. From the origins of batik. How they're made. Its... More

We're so glad we came here! Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and we learned so much - the collection is truly stunning - in both size and beauty! Definitely recommend, as it will make your whole experience looking at batik throughout the rest of your travels much richer.
