I came here with my daughter. it's a good place to visit to give an education of an early start of a Bank in Indonesia. There're some machine use in the old era, collections of old money from time to time, etc.

There are two bank museums in Jakarta, sitting right next door to each other. Ironically, as it's half the entrance fee of the other, the Museum Bank is the more interesting. It costs IR5000 to visit, which is only about US$0.35! It won't take you...More

It's only IR5000 to visit the museum. Next door you'll find another banking museum that charges IR10,000. Double the price for about half the interest. In both cases, it's the buildings that are the most interesting feature... More
