If you think that a visit to this place is a bore then you are wrong. This museum gives one the feel that having your own bank is possible.

It's supposedly the monsoon season now however if it happens to be scorching hot at the time of travel, then the MBI would be the best escape from the heat. Not just for its full air-conditioning, this educational place serves as a display of old global currencies, not just Indonesia's itself. You can find coins and paper notes dating back... More

Unlike other museums in Kota Tua area, this one is very comfy. They have aircon in it, so this place could be a nice attraction and a short escape from Jakarta's heat. The ticket is, guess what, it's free. No need to buy any ticket to access this museum. At the beginning when you enter the museum, the staff will... More

This dutch-stlye-building museum is just great: you can learn the history about Indonesian economy and its currency. Great collections as well. Worth a visit if you ask me.

Entrance fee is 5,000 rupiahs per person. Near the Entrance, we were asked to leave our bags before starting our visit. A clear plastic bag was provided to us where we could put our wallets and cameras. All Exhibit Rooms have air conditioners. Displays are mostly those dealing with the history of the money/paper currency of Indonesia. We also visited... More
