The Bank Indonesia museum is by far the best museum in Jakarta. The others tend to have a few half empty rooms and dusty displays with no labels. This museum, however, is slick, modern, and actually informative. And it's free! It can get quite busy on Saturdays and holidays. Going in the week or an hour or two before closing... More

Informative about how Indonesia's foreign trade shaped the country during the colonisation and the role of the central bank in the country following independence. I recommend visiting this after Museum Fatahillah and Museum Wayang, because it's nicer to finish the day with the better maintained, airconned and informative museum.

We enjoyed seeing the history of banks at this museum. Information on how the banking sector and Indonesia was affected by the 2008 crisis would be a great addition. There seemed to be nothing after the turn of the century (2000). The museum was clean and informative, although a little noisy with school children--but great to see students there!

The entrance fee is cheap cost less than $0.5, I went there with my kid, the museum displays the history of Indonesian central bank. You could spend about an hour there inside a fully air conditioned building.

Last week, April 5th 2017, I went there to accompany my daughter's school visit to the museum. For group visit such as school visit, reservation was made in advance. The entry fee costs only Rp. 5000 per person. We were allowed to bring only our wallet and cellular phone inside. The museum was clean and well maintained. Lots of information... More
