Why Museum Sempoerna is special ?
What to explore at Museum Sempoerna?
Upstairs there’s a bird’s-eye perspective of the factory’s shop floor, where hundreds of women hand roll, trim and pack the Dji Sam Soe brand (banned from most countries as the tar content is so strong).
The fastest rollers here churn out 4000 cigarettes a day, their fingers a blur of motion. Because air-conditioning can affect the tobacco (and fans would blow it around) it's a steamy, humid workplace.
You should be accompanied by a highly informative, English-speaking guide. Note that the museum is open late, but the factory section closes around 3pm.
After your visit, be sure to have a drink in the excellent neighbouring cafe-restaurant and consider a trip on the company's intriguing sightseeing bus tour, the Surabaya Heritage Track.

Tips for you
This place's very unique and beautiful. It's near my boarding house so sometimes i visit this place with my friend.
Big museum, beautiful old architecture. In the night the lights illuminate the building, which is recommended over the view during daytime.
A must do, since you will see a unique heritage not only for the country but in general. Some of the pictures are a very good piece of history and if you go between 10-11, you have a chance to see the shop floor in action - and that is impressive.
The museum is free,, very nice,, and gives you so many informations about the sampoerna tobacco company.. And they have great cafe too. Great place to have lunch..
