Surrounding with old architecture buildings. The Museum building is well maintain, clean and also well air conditioned, such a release from hot climate outside. It's a must for Jakarta resident also... More

not many people know exactly how banking started in Indonesia and I have the privilege to visit this museum before it even opens for public. It has so many history and artefacts from the beginning of banking in Indonesia, including a table that the very first meeting was held by the very first president.

The Bank Museum in Jakarta, Indonesia is a fascinating array of olde worlde and existing currencies. Each country has been meticulously documented and preserved inside a filing system of sliding glass cases. Apparently counterfeit currency is a problem in this country.

The Dutch architecture is really awesome. It's worth visiting to learn about economic/banking history of Indonesia. The booth and exhibition are beautifully displayed, good to take pictures with.

Housed in an imposing whitewashed building of neo-renaissance architecture, it has a wide range of exhibits/artifacts, providing visitors with audio and visual experience on history of currencies and trade in Indonesia from bygone eras to the present. To those interested in how the Indonesia's... More

This museum located side by side with Museum Bank Mandiri in Kota Tua area. It's better if you should Museum Bank Mandiri first before visiting this museum. They have modern technology to showcase the history of monetary in Indonesia as well as Indonesian Tradition. You should ask the Museum Crew about the location of toilet, because it's not clearly marked.

Interesting way to get into indonesian history, just before the Netherlands slavery; the inside patio it's amazing all white painted; the most interesting thing is that keeps original furniture from Netherlands colonialism times.
