  • The museum is housed in a traditional Batak style house. It was filled almost to overflowing with items and artifacts from the Batak past. ancient cloths and fabric. stone sculptures, a variety of too...  more »
  • A bit touristy, but also fun to be there and get involved. You see that people really like to show something about the culture.

  • I have attended dances typical all over the world and this is a little swindle, that they do not follow the script that you enter and make it hastily, has little interest. However the town is beautiful and has a school where you can chat with the children after the performance. The Museum is interesting.

  • 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
  • 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.
  • An old museum , sometimes there are Batak dance performance in the museum. The Batak traditional house are still in good condition
