A place to endure quiet time and learn about Sumba culture
Feb 2018 • Business
Rumah Budaya Sumba, is a place where I always choose to stay everytime I go to Sumba island.

The place is quiet hidden, and not too far away from the airport, and located up on the hill, and what I like it most that it has the traditional local architecture of Sumba House, with that high grass roof.

There is a museum in this place that display Sumbanese cultural things and utensils for Sumbanesse traditional rites and especially the fabulous beautiful Sumbanesse weaving textiles motifs and patterns.

There are limestone sculptures to around the central field of this place which are represents animals that are significant in the Sumbanesse culture.

In the few months, the Sumbanesse Weaving Textile Museum is about ready to be open, in these new Museum, you will be able to see the richness motifs and patterns and techniques that is being used to make all of the beautiful Sumbanesse weaving Textile ("Sarong").

There are two backpacker lodges with much less expensive that you can rent.

So, next time, if you need a boutique hotel and enjoy learning of Sumbanesse culture and architecture, I suggest you to stay in this place.

A nice small museum to took at. Only one pavillion with not so many items to look at. Understandable because many old artifacts t of sumba already sold to outside world

Entry fee is too expensive for tourists, IDR 50,000. Nothing much to see, better go to algadry souveneer at waikabubak, no charges for entry and better and more artefacts.

Great insight into sumba's past
Jun 2017 • Friends
Worth visiting if you're in the area. So great artifacts showcasing the history of this off the beaten track island. Staff were very helpful, even had a shot of locally brewed spirit (sumba's version of arak). Would have been great if they had more artifacts but apparently most of them have been purchased over the last few years.

One stop learning center
Jun 2017
When we got there the center was closed for Lebaran holiday. So we didn't see much. However, this amazing place offered a cozy atmosphere. We were allowed to walk around the area and enjoy the calm cool breeze. When you enter this area, you will be welcomed by 'a school of' coconut trees on your left and right hand sides. The 2 main buildings resemble Sumba traditional house. You won't miss a cluster of bungalow and rooms available for visitors to rent. The whole area was really clean. It seems that everything was well-maintained.

One stop place to understand Marapu
Mar 2017 • Friends
Sumba is also called "Tanah Marapu", that is because they have this Marapu belief. Marapu is an ancient belief, kind of animism belief, which still exsist and worshiped by Sumba people. This place, is like a one stop information center if you want to know about Marapu and Sumbanese culture. Because there are no literarure about Marapu, so we could get full information from locals. So this is defenitely a must visit place when you go to Sumba. You will surely got the information you need

Complete story about Sumba
Jan 2017 • Family
This museum is in the city and can be visited as the first spot after arrive in Tambolaka airport. There were some artefacts, fabrics, pictures about Sumba. We can ask the whole story about Sumba here. Unfortunately we are not allowed to take picture inside the museum, but we still can take picture outside.

Worthwhile

This place is growing and now offers accommodation as well that would be suitable for groups or budget backpackers with their price range. The experience could be improved with more explanations of the artifacts and at least some of the more important information translated to English.

Must see place
Oct 2016 • Solo
I thoroughly recommend this centre. The vision of local priest Father Robert to establish this centre to preserve and champion the indigenous cultures of Sumba is highly commendable. The collection is extensive and the displays are very accessible. I was very pleased to discover this hidden gem.
