Museum Danar Hadi is a private museum built by the founder of Danar Hadi. It displays a great collection of batik from around Indonesia. Guided by a proficient museum guide, we'll be able to understand and adore the history of batik. Best batik collection so far. No photos taking in the museum, but you can take some around the premises.... More

Found out so much about batik that I had never heard of before. This was such an interesting visit. It is more about batik itself and not the making process in depth although you do visit the workshop. Even my husband found it really interesting.

An incredible collection of Batiks. Its one persons collection. About a 1000 pieces are on display. Our guide was Aulia who was able to provide a fair amount of knowledge about the many batiks on display.

Recommend you take a little time and learn the fascinating history and techniques of producing batik fabrics. And definitely buy at least one batik short or blouse as a souvenir.

If you go to Solo this museum is a must place to visit. Its a private museum and in my opinion its the best batik museum in Indonesia. Execellent display, clean rooms and professional guide. Two thumbs up.

I placed a review a few months back, but it was removed, probably because I reviewed the shop section of this establishment, rather than the museum. So here we go again. Lets qualify this - this "museum" comprises two parts. The museum and the shop. The shop sells some beautiful, high end, silk batiks, with prices ranging from 2 million... More

We arrived here late evening and the museum was already closed. But you still can visit the area surrounding and the shop. Browse through the batik's product at the shop and maybe you would want to buy some for souveniers. There is a corner where you could read some information on Danar Hadi's batik.

The people who work there were very friendly and welcoming. The architecture of the building is so beautiful. The collections are impressive. Plus, we had the chance to experience the process of making batik. Would have given five stars if the guide (who was very nice and sweet all the time) was more confident speaking in English.

The ticket price is affordable IDR 35.000 for trudent and IDR 55.000 for adults. You's get your personal guide to take tour at the museum. The Batik collections are so adorable and nice, it will take for about 40minutes to strolling the museum.
