We tried to visit in the early afternoon today (Monday) but although the sign said it's open every day, it was closed. There was no sign to say whether it is closed every day at the moment or if they have different opening hours to usual, so try to check in advance if you're going there specially.

I didn’t know how much I was going to fall in love with Batik paintings when I entered the museum. The man running the museum was very kind and informative. I have gained a lot of admiration for this style of art now!! A must visit, well worth your time

Really insightful experience, for art appreciators. It is a museum of exquisite art pieces by famous artists, meant for viewing purposes - the exhibited paintings are not for sale, though there are prints and other batik paintings for sale.

This isn't a batik museum about the history of batik patterns on clothing. As explained by the staff, there is a difference between the commercialised batik pattern printing on cloth, and batik painting as a wax-and-dye art technique.

The owner established the museum for the purpose of educating the public on the niche art form, and unique culture and history of Batik painting in Penang, Malaysia - which unknown to many, is apparently the first known origin of painting using the batik technique.There are no batik classes at the moment, though the owner is considering adding that in the future. Set on Armenian Street a few doors down from the famous bicycle mural, this museum is a gem for art lovers.

This is a private collection of amazing batik designs. There are artists from all of asia represented. I bought a beautiful design, however there are very few for sale so if you are shopping for batik you may not find a selection.none the less, i recommend this museum, a 10 ringet entry, but worth it.

Well, if in Georgetown; you certainly want to walk Armenia St. And so might as well see the Batik Art Museum. Only less expensive ones for sale. Looks like a regular painting but it … Really nice Malaysian art with some very cool normal street/work/life scenes.

Stumbled this museum by chance and was awed by the collection. The Batik paintings are personal collections by the owner over the years. Batik as most know are decorations on cloth to be used as clothing. This museum however showcase Batik as a medium for paintings. A cool place to take a break, rest and cool down and feast your eyes with the intricacies of the Batik paintings when exploring the streets of Georgetown.

Although I had seen batik paintings before, I didn't know a lot about them before I visited this museum. I'm glad I did! There are a lot of pieces of art to see and the woman running the place is just wonderful. She is passionate about batik art and very knowledgable. The works displayed are very different in style and so fascinating. I didn't know batik painting was so versatile! If you enjoy art at least a bit, I really recommend you give this centrally located museum a shot.

We visited the Batik Museum on a recommendation and thoroughly enjoyed it. 10RM is very reasonable, first up is an educational video on how batik painting is done, by a master Malaysian batik artist. The collection in the museum is three floors and absolutely beautiful, some stunning pieces, I highly recommend a visit, unique, beautiful and educational.
