Visited the place due to its newly inscribed title as a Tentative World Heritage Site of Unesco, together with the Coal Mine Sites within the town.
In this place all the food for the labour being prepared and made.
The size of the place reflect the number labour they had to feed, which is thousands.
A very nice place to visit, to see and read on the history of the place.
Coal Mining is the backbone of the town, and here we can understand why.

Recommended.

This museum comprises a complex of old buildings & exhibits. the 'coal' museum itself is very interesting & the displays are well presented. We were particularly taken with the huge cooking pots, used to feed patients in hospital. We learnt about the way prisoners were used for their labour & their treatment as 'slaves'. Well worth a look, although not many exhibits have English translation. We had a very competent guide who took the time to explain the exhibits to us in excellent English.

I really enjoy when came to Sawah Lunto. Little city in Sumatera Barat but looks really colonially. We can see old building in every place in sawah lunto. Its looks 40's. But really nice and so gothic.

The nice view that we can see alphabeth of 'sawahlunto' in the one of hill and this can be seen from this city. Sawah lunto really popular as city of train. Their citizen call train with "Mak Item" because in the past time train in sawah lunto have black colour.

As train of city, you must come and see 'train museum' (mak item museum) in Sawah Lunto. Very interesting because we can see history of train that still exist in this time. But this time, train not for comersial, just for tourism service.
