What makes this museum interesting is the fact that most of the exhibits are the old office equipment that usually ends up in a landfill somewhere. This means that older visitors who worked in offices from the 1960s to this millennium will recognize the old office machines, computers etc that they used to do their day to day work and... More

First time I walked into the building, the spooky atmosphere is really strong. It's getting worse in the basement where it shown us some kind of history of banking in diorama. But when I get to the library, it has some of cool stuff to read and relax. If you're interested in history and banking, you may like this one.

Loved the interior of the museum especially the beautiful stained glass window going to the second floor. Also loved the long quiet corridors, brown floor tiles, marble counters and even the pretty courtyard in the middle if the building. The exhibits were well displayed and the information were very clear. We loved looking at all the machines over the past... More

For students, you're free to enter. You just have to write your name and your school/university name down in a guest book. I have come to this museum several times. And I do appreciate the development that's showing. Literally, over the years, the museum was trying to stay 'new'. Really, if you compare the after and before, you would see... More

First i visited this museum that located in Kota, Jakarta, it is so scary and spooky.. I got the mystic feeling when I walk around the museum. The museum is so dark and full of mystic. Everybody likes to visit this museum because of its mystic, not the history itself. Okay, nothing to do here. But I saw people take... More

This museum is located in Kota Tua, near Harmoni. The place was a bank, but now functioned as a museum. The entry ticket is very cheap, with no guide at all. We enter the museum and there are a lot of rooms visit, they displayed a lot of historical items in banking back then. Also stories about Bank Mandiri. The... More

You can enter Bank Mandiri Museum for free and you’ll find so many historic artifacts regarding to the journey of Indonesian finance history. This place is very strategic, easy to reach for any backpacker but keep your wallet safely, because the issue said that some tourists are a victim of a pick pocket. You can reach the place by TransJakarta... More

The whole place seems like a poorly lit and ventilated warehouse. The exhibits include some old office equipment (old keyboards, typewriters, ATMs etc) and they were all poorly maintained and presented, making it seem like flea market than a museusm. There is no airconditioning in the building making it really stuff and warm to visit. Give this place a miss!
