Amazing architecture, coloured glass, views and very well maintained. There is no entrance fee. It was opened to public as late as 2009 but it... More

The collections are very interesting and curated in very interesting way. There was a game to grab virtual coin... More

The space itself is a beautifully preserved antique building, with old-styled bank counter, wooden furniture, and several colorful stained glass windows. The exhibit was arranged chronologically and highly informative (though not... More

The museum impressed us with the organisation and modernity of exhibits. Get there early to avoid school tours and the rush of visitors.

I arrived at the museum at about 3pm so only had 1 hour to your. I recommend about 2 hours to take everything in at a good pace. Overall a great educational experience. You get to learn about Indonesia's banking and link with political history and transition from Dutch and Japanese rule to self governance. There is also a section... More
