Museum of Smoking, Indonesia

From series “Strange, Weird and Unusual Museums Amusing its Visitors”
Although millions of people around the world report about the health damage from smoking and propagate the healthy lifestyle, there is the incredibly interesting museum of smoking in the Indonesian town of Kudus. The emergence of this cultural institution in Indonesia is not accidental. For the locals, smoking is not the bad habit, but a real part of the culture. They believe that smoking enlightens the mind and soothes the human being, as well as the magical powers.

Museum of Smoking, Indonesia The museum contains a very interesting collection of exhibits related to smoking. In the glazed racks you can see the beautiful whistle of handwork and shisha, the old tobacco cans, the boxes and the tobacco bags, as well as the interesting equipment with which the cigarettes can be assembled and filled independently. The collection of cigarettes and cigars is equally extensive. Some of the tobacco varieties are not sold anymore. The interesting exposure is devoted to tobacco breeding, as well as to the processing process.

The Antitabak propaganda campaign worldwide led to the closure of the museum a few years ago. However, it has managed its owners to regain the rights, and as early as 2007, the Museum of Smoking was reopened. Today, visitors can not only visit the large collection of exhibits, but also taste the best varieties of Indonesian tobacco in the special hall and buy tobacco in the shop. The museum has been actively cooperating with the local farmers for many years and is considered an intermediary at the close of business between farmers and tobacco producers from different countries of the world.
