  • We didn't plan to stop here. At first we just want to enjoy the heritage of Batak traditional houses. But as we jumped into one house we found that the show about to begin. What show? It's traditional...  more »

  • Nice to visit but other then the Batak houses not much to see here.
  • I was there, no care, old place, kind dirty, not organised, nothing is open, only one room display dusty and difficult to read or understand. who work there as you pay they disaper, dance performance by old woman and not interested like they were forced to do it. Don't west your time there.
  • The bestb of traditional batak museum
  • An old museum , sometimes there are Batak dance performance in the museum. The Batak traditional house are still in good condition
  • A much better traditional dance experience than Sigale Sigale near Toba beach. There's a significant cast of villagers and a real buffalo. A lot of tourists arrive here by tour boat (I rode a motorcycle). There is shaded seating if you get there a little bit before the performance. It's out of the way but worth the trip. The scenery on the way their is really beautiful. It's a little disappointing that you can't go into the big houses behind the dancers but I think that's because they're actually being lived in.
