Jakarta, IO – The Indonesian Batik Museum, which is located at Taman Mini Indonesia Indah (TMII), East Jakarta, is one of the special batik museums that strives to preserve and promote Indonesian Batik. Established in 2014 by the Ministry of Education and Culture (Kemendikbud), the museum is a concrete symbol of the richness of the country’s intangible cultural heritage.

UNESCO’s recognition of Indonesian Batik on October 2, 2009 by including it in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, provided a strong foundation for the establishment of this museum. The architecture, with a floor plane that resembles folds of cloth, creates an immersive visual experience for visitors.

Batik motifs, such as Kawung, which decorates the facade of the museum building, are not just aesthetic, but also tell history and deep meaning. More than just an information center, the Indonesian Batik Museum also serves as a keeper and teller of stories about the beauty and uniqueness of Indonesian Batik.

It plays a key role in educating the public on the rich history of Indonesian Batik through exhibitions and attractive digital displays. Through this initiative, it is hoped that the museum will not be only used to popularize batik, but also become a center of innovation and inspiration for future generations.
