Museum Tekstil

Museum in Jakarta

Very much a worthwhile visit if you've any interest in weaving and fabrics, this museum houses a collection of around 2000 precious textiles, including hundreds of batik pieces, both antique and contemporary, lots of looms and a garden containing plants used for natural dyes. It's about 2km southwest of Merdeka Square, and not easily reached by public transport. Ask about classes to study batik.
