House of Sampoerna

Situated in old Surabaya, the Dutch colonial-style
House of Sampoerna building was constructed in 1862
and is currently a culturally preserved building. Initially
used as an orphanage managed by the Dutch colonial
government, in 1932 the building complex was purchased
by Liem Seeng Tee, the founder of Sampoerna. Displayed
is a diverse collection of historic items from the Sampoerna
family and its business such as a vintage Rolls Royce,
a traditional kebaya blouse that has been handed down
through several generations, and tools used to manufacture
cigarettes.
