We went to the museum during the end of Ramadan. Unfortunately, the do-your-own batik experience and the gift shop were not open due to the holiday. In addition to the shop, the museum consists of two buildings. One is not-air-conditioned and contains older batiks. The newer building is air-conditioned and has some very beautiful and artistic contemporary batiks. Well worth the visit. Photos were not allowed. The museum was very difficult to find. Don't expect taxi drivers to know where it is. We had a map, but we found drivers could not read maps. It is also difficult to get a taxi back to your hotel from the museum.

The museum itself is good. But that's all.

What I enjoy the most about this place is that it has a batik workshop behind the museum.
By only paying 40k IDR , you could make a batik handkerchief.
Malam (wax), canting, fabric and the fire equipment is provided by the workshop.
But you could also buy the complete set if you want to mbatik outside your home (maybe at your home?).
If handkerchief is a small challenge for you, you could try to make a tablecloth (I forgot the price).

The surrounding of the museum is nice. Green (sometimes that is scarce around Jakarta).
You could also see some plants that is used for fabric natural coloring.

Maybe the minus point of this museum is the access. It is near the famous Pasar Grosir Tanah Abang. So maybe it is a little bit chaos since there are so many sellers in the road surrounding this museum.

Obviously the most interesting attraction from this museum is that you can make your own batik. Don't expect that you'd be given a thorough explanation on the process or the history behind the making of batiks, as the people tending to the place do not seem to care too much. But it is quite an experience to just be able to do this.

The museum is clean. Cleaner than almost every museum in Jakarta. The batik collections vary and are quite well-kept. Complemented by the colonial architecture of the buildings, this place is one of the better museums in the city.

I like the atmosphere once I got inside the compound of the museum. However the outside surrounding was distracting...those street vendors 'almost' hid this gems.
