“Modern and informative museum. Well designed with a good mix of historical bulding, objects, audiovisuals.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Must be one of the best museums in Indonesia, easliey located opposite the Jakarta Kota Station.
A must see for those interested in both colonial history and the development op modern Indonesia.

“Very informative without any fees”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

The building itself is worth a visit. No entrance fee, just leave your belongings at the entrance. Start with video presentation on the history of currency. Then go through informative dioramas on the history of Bank Indonesia and Indonesia's economy in general. View currencies from days gone by.

“great building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

worth a wander around, if just to get out of the heat. Have a cool drink on the veranda as you levitate above the masses.
