Definitely the place to come before you buy any batik in order to understand the process, meaning and colours of batik. It was completely deserted when I went and I had two guides take me around.

Great collection of batik and stamps. The museum seems a little old but you will see the guide is excellent. Her english was very good and she even knew some french. She taught me a lot about how to create and wear batik.

Seems to be the official Batik Museum. Located away from the tourist area. While you can get to know about the process some, the main goal seems to be to seel batiks to you.

Most of the Souvenir are very interested and the price is fair. But they can't speak English Language. They always say Javanese Language. Other wise, they made fixed price whatever you want and need or something like that.
