You do not often come across a museum with this theme, and that makes this museum special. I enjoyed it, it provides a good overview of banking in the 1930s and also about the history of how this building was constructed. The building is really impressive.

I had no idea what to expect when I arrived here but found it to be one of the more interesting museums I have been to. The audio guide and displays gave me a great education about a subject I was mostly ignorant about. Plus, where else are they going to let you hold a bar of gold?!

When I arrived, there were a lot of visitors lining up to visit the museum; most of them were locals. The museum was quite informative, but most of the information was focused on the local currency and history of the banks in Indonesia. The entrance fee is cheap (only IDR 5000), and if you have a student card, it's free!... More

Somewhere between Dutch colonial administration and early Indonesian administration, this building was the central (Javanese) bank headquarters. The retail banking interface (e.g. counters for depositors) you can see at the start of the (paid) museum exhibit, with the added modern comfort of air-conditioning. Behind that are exhibits explaining Indonesia's currency & monetary system from Dutch administration to the 2000s. By... More

The Museum Bank Indonesia is an excellent museum in the head office of the bank which traces its past to colonial days to the present. It was quite different to what I was expecting - which was just a focus on the history of money in Indonesia. It looked at Indonesia's history and its effect on money - the effect... More

This museum is absolutely the best. The restored Dutch building looks beautifully smooth and new. The air conditioning is really good and chilly for the hot Jakarta, and the exhibits are exquisite. Very good planning of the positioning and the exhibits are beautiful.

Good museum that mixes the political, social, and cultural history of Indonesia with the monetary and commercial history. As Jakarta has limited good sites, this ranks quite high.
