SNAPSHOTS: Asia Photo Essay #12: HOUSE OF SAMPOERNA

Not gonna lie, but I’ve been telling everyone that prior to visiting Surabaya, I don’t know much about the place and the fact that most historical events in Indonesian politics actually took place here. After attending a conference at Universitas Airlangga, I had the chance to explore the city, more particularly, its museums. The first museum I was able to see is House of Sampoerna, a tobacco museum.
