Old colonialized building with white dominated color. Situated in Tanah Abang area which can be traffically challenging to come. The displays can be arranged better and more attractive, not considered as just "display". The premise is sometimes used for wedding function too.

A museum where you learn about Indonesian clothes (batik). For IDR 75,000 you can get a ticket for a batik drawing class
