This was not very impressing but it gave me good history lesson and reminded me of the Dutch VOC's stronghold on the country and region, during the spice trade.
The architecture of the museum leaves an impression of you.
I would recommend that you don't spend too much time here.

Yes, we are the first three visitor of this museum in 2013. It was a great experience for me and kiddos during school holiday. We went thru the the museum without any other visitor since it was still 830am. Although it was well maintained, clean and neat, but something you won't miss is the strange effect of a big old 'house' - there was something that make my back hair to stand on end..
But still, i have to look brave and calm so my kids enjoyed the visit till the end.

However i raised my two thumbs up for the management who maintained it well, also the make over of its restroom so it looks modern and comfort, far from spooky or dirty image.

Wander at will through this building which once held the Indonesisch Nederlands Bank. To be followed by a number of short lived banks that went spectacularly bankrupt! I wonder why?

Well managed, the interior is new and have kind of story-telling route.
Most importantly, you won't get hot here.
