If you're looking for a place where you can see many vintage things, you should visit this place. It is a very thematic place, and the theme is about the old cigarette factory, Sampoerna. You can see their old factory from the viewing balcony on the first floor and a lot of things about cigarette production in its ground floor.... More

This is a museum which provides history of Sampoerna Cigarette, well conserved, nice ambience. You need to be aware if you do not like tobacco smell, because the place has strong tobacco smell.

I spent half an hour in the museum. There is nothing much to read or see in the museum. In the second storey is a shop selling some indonesian souvinir. Nearby the museum is a cafe, ehich is quite good taste of traditional food. Its ok to be here once.

In this museum, you will find an information about Sampoerna, old stuff, old picture, cafe and restaurant, merchandise and even you can see how they make their... More

If you want to bring your friends from abroad or from outside Surabaya to any touristic places in Surabaya, don't forget to visit this museum. It is rather small, but it is worth visiting.

It provides history of Sampoerna Cigarette. The museum had a quite strong smell of tobacco, which I didn't really like it. There were a variety of cigarette box of Samperna from long time ago, they're machines, and the factory where workers used to make cigarettes. There was also a small stall usually called "warung" in Indonesia, where people sells cigarette,... More

For those who are looking for a classic traditional food, definitely the place. The decor is really nice, the staff too. Though it feels uncomfortable as they're staring at you all the time. Overall, the ambience, the food, the staff, and the price is great.

So much history in Indonesia is crumbling due to lack of interest - This is one example of a place that is lovingly conserved - And no admission required
