Excellent tour of the owners' private collection. Room after room of fascinating batiks. You emerge, not only with an appreciation of the evolution of traditional batik artistry, but of the myriad adaptations of batik by European, Chinese and other Southeast Asian countries. I only wish they allowed photos of the collection.

This is a fabulous treasure trove of historic batik fabrics - the only frustration was there was too much to take in on the quick guided tour and photos are not permitted. The surrounding building withcourtyards is also very charming and worth a walk around.

Very professional guides walk you through the history, the batiking process and the regional-style differences. Marvel at the details of the few rare masterpieces. Easily the best batik museum in the world! A definite highlight of a trip to Solo. It's conveniently located in a spacious leafy compound once owned by an aristocratic family in the city center.

Each region is represented with batiks unique to that region along with the raw materials used to dye the batiks and examples of how... More

The location is very green and clean. The entrance fee is 35k rupiaks which i think it's a lil bit overpriced for a museum ✌ But... More

So glad we did this tour. It's Rp35,000/per person and 45 minutes long, and so worth it. The guide spoke excellent English. Learned so much about Javanese batik, specifically from central Java. Could have looked at the batik all day. Loved that we got to see the process of making the batik, by stamp and by hand drawing. Incredible detail... More

Even if you are not into batik this is a nice private museum to visit. Guides speak good English and give you a very informative tour of about an hour. Everything is very well displayed.
