i bring my little brother to see this place. he like it so much and he want me bring him back again.
The museum occupies the old and charming colonial building that once was a functional bank. It is clean and well-maintained, especially compared to some of the other museum in the precinct. We were in luck that we came in right before the 15 minutes animation screened. The animation was about basic knowledge of trades & money and history of bank... More
It's interesting to go inside an old bank and see the old machinery used, the vaults... They have some mannequins placed around to mimic the old days. The place is not very well maintained though, it's cheap to go in. There is a small cafe you can grab a coffee or some pastries and there was a band playing some... More
This is one of the best museums around! It shows a great financial history of Indonesia and has a nice collection of coins/paper currency used over the years. The signs are all local language + English so it is easy for foreign visitors to appreciate it. Very well done museum and surprisingly free! In addition, be sure to visit the... More
I find many new information from my tour in this building, specially monetary history. The collections were complete! But, I found that many LCD was removed from its place and also turned off. The air conditioner also turned off in several places made the place not comfortable. Very sad, POOR MAINTENANCE.
Very entertaining museum on the origin of Indonesia money. We could see a huge history about bank of Indonesia. Not only the type of money but also the uniform of the staff. Everything made me so excited. No fee to enter. All of staffs were so great, they could speak English well. You will have a great time and a... More

I have always loved museums. At least for me, the existence of museums in a city corresponds well with how cultured the civilization on that particular population really is. Museum should have not only entertaining, but also be a place where transfers of history will transcend the test of time. A place to learn and a place full of important... More
This is probably one of the best and modern museum i've seen in Indonesia, the building itself is also very beautiful. There is no entrance fee which is great and the place is air conditioned! It's like a large time-machine that takes youback to history on how banking, money and spice trades are happening back in colonial times, i could... More
If you are visiting Fatahillah Square (you should), the museum is only about 5 minutes away via a pedestrian only street. The website says it opens at 7:30am but when I turned up they told me to come back at 9am. Although the glitzy mirror/glass/digital display is more of an distraction rather than being informative, an hour at the museum... More
