An amazing number of batiks from a private collection, well categorized and displayed. With a required guide, we walked through this extensive museum. Batiks were grouped by time period and geographical area and influence, e.g., Indian, Chinese, etc. We also had a demonstration of the freehand waxing process done by women who have been doing most of their adult lives....

This was a very informative and interesting tour for my group even after having seen many different batik stores on our trip before this. The quality of the samples that are shown are extraordinary and very beautiful. There is a very good demonstration of the process and you can even have a quick go yourself for a photo op. Well...

Batik is ubiquitous in central Java and so it was really interesting to visit a museum devoted to it (it's surprising that Jogja doesn't have a decent one, given the number of tourists there). The Danar Hadi museum is beautifully curated - even the house itself is architecually interesting. There is an extensive collection of batik and it is very... More

It was really nice visit for me in Solo. It was first time to visit this museum, even though I have visited Solo many time. There will be a guide who will explain the history, type of batik and development of batik itself. There is also Batik making process demo. Guide's explaination made my visit really worth.

We went there on Friday around 10am. We've got a gentleman as our guide (you can't walk around without a guide), he is very good in explanation but he need yo slow down his explanation and give us time to enjoy the batik collections. I don't because he wants to hurry because he wants to do the friday pray or... More

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.

This museum is well design, and very good for Batik knowledge that you never know before. Pay 35.000 Rupiah per entrance and for student pay 15.000 Rupiah instead
