Many things to learn here. But I think it's not so easy to reach, not in the center of town. One of the Surabaya's landmark to visit with your friends or family

It's a nice little private museum. Entrance is free. Make sure to book the free city tour as well. The staff is really friendly and helpful. There is a nice souvenir shop at the top floor.

The whole concept of the House of Sampoerna is simply perfection from the location, the garden, porte cochere, professional & warm welcome from the security team, professional & warm welcome from the museum staff (in black uniforms), bi-lingual text and details (the English text are simply professional & perfection). I love the colonial feel of the building, I even love... More

Fascinating place to visit to see how the cigarette industry developed in Surubaya. The museum and its collection have been well preserved and provide a great history lesson. Watching cigarettes still being made by hand was a bit challenging. Had lunch at the restaurant which was very good.
