  • Recomended place in Surabaya, prepare your camera for many unique spot. Nice Place to learn about Indonesia cigarette industry
  • Free museum I ever been! If you're smoker and or fan of Sampoerna, you should visit House of Sampoerna. You could see history the man behind "Sampoerna", cigs maker tools, their marching band, etc. Or looking for "A mild" shirt? You can find it out here! Highly recommended visit on weekdays, because you could see cigarettes making process. Sadly, I came on weekend. Please remind you're not allowed taking photograph of this process.
  • Well maintained museum... must visit place when visit Surabaya. But not suitable for children
  • It's a museum about Sampoerna's history as a cigarette company. It contains a lot of items from the oldest till the newest. And it's also free of charge.
  • I like the museum, but also like the cafe name A Cafe, the place very cozy and they have delicious food. Good to eat for couple, family,or group. With slow instrumental music,the place very romantic.
