  • Interesting place. Full of information. The place when I went there was very crowded. Over-all it's okay for a tour. 
  • Museum ini bagus banget, karena penataannya rapi dan untuk masuknya kita tidak dikenakan biaya. Bangunannya masih seperti dulu. Di sana kita bisa melihat langsung buruh-buruh yang membuat rokok. 
  • 泗水絕無僅有的景點。這個博物館比較著重這間煙草公司的歷史。但我本身卻從不認識這間煙草公司,對它的歷史也興趣不大。但裏面有一些歷史展品也很有趣的, 特別是如果你喜歡收集/欣賞這一類舊物。 我是在下午到這間博物館的, 所以當我參觀時工人都已下班了, 讓我有點敗興而歸。因此如果你早上來參觀的話, 就可以看到工人在捲煙的過程, 相信會令你大開眼界。 
  • 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.
  • Salah satu museum yang wajib dikunjungi. Di dalamnya ada banyak objek menarik seputar rokok Sampoerna, dan jika beruntung (hari kerja, terakhir sampai jam satu siang, kata penjaga pintu), kamu bisa melihat secara langsung proses pembuatan rokok dari lantai 2. Selain itu, di sebelah belakang museum juga ada galeri lukisan. Di depannya ada tempat untuk mendaftar Surabaya Heritage Track, dan restoran (memang tidak terlalu terlihat dan pintu seperti terkunci, tapi buka, kok).
  • 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.
  • Very beautiful, you can learn a lot in here! There's also a cafe! Heritage bus available at 9am, 1pm and 3pm Booking needed! via call Duration 1 hour on weekday 1,5 hour on weekend including Friday For free! Entrance fee also free for both adults or kids
  • Great experience looking at antiques and Sampoerna's history. Sometimes you can see the ladies producing the cigarettes here in the museum. Very clean, nicely maintained, and well staffed.
