Jakarta, Textile Museum


Address: Jl. Aipda KS. Tubun 2-4, Central Jakarta 11410.
 Phone: (62)(21) 560 6613.
 Review: Housed in an old villa, the building was originally owned by a French businessman in the 19th century before being sold to a Turkish consul to Batavia.
 The building then went through various government hands before the Textile Museum was established here in 1975. Inside, you’ll find over 300 indigenous textiles from all over Indonesia including cotton and silk batik, intricately woven ikat and various others.
 There’s also a detailed explanation on the making of batik as well as a set of rare rattan armor from West Papua.
 Opening hours: Tues-Thurs & Sun 9 AM – 4 PM, Fri 9 AM – 3 PM. Closed on Monday.
