  • It is a -must-cultural-visit, if you are the ones who love Indonesian traditional batik. Beside of displaying lots collection of batik from diverse area in Indonesia, you'll be guided by the staffs who will explain the meaning and whereabouts the batik coming from. Moreover you can also learn how to "membatik" , the simple one, from the instructor. If you wanna use the real membatik tools such as canting, it's also available if any instructors around.
  • Must visit museum in Pekalongan. You can learn history about Pekalongan Batik in general
  • Pay a very cheap ticket and get a guide to show you around. It's very well worthy. The guide will show you all collection in three separate rooms. The first room is dedicated for Yogya and Solo batik. They are inner part of Javanesse with strict rules on batik usage. Each pattern has their own meaning and user, mainly for the royals. The second room is for coastal batik, from all over northern coast of Java. They're more liberal in pattern and usage, and also more colorful. The third room is specific for Pekalongan's batik. You'll see the creative 2-in-1 pattern called Pagi Sore and also Terang Bulan which is less complicated. Don't forget to join the workshop and experience the struggle to create a batik cloth. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommended.
  • Nice historical museum, a traveller should visit this place
