I came on 5 pm and the museum is closed. But the batik store and restaurant still open until 9pm. In my opinion the batik they sell are average in model and a bit pricy.

The difference is the Batik is shown openly, not put in a glass, still we cant touch it. The ticket is included a tour guide to accompany us and share... More

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.
