I was running out of rainy day places to visit but was presently surprised by this we'll run informative museum. It sound not be last on your list but you need a little understanding of the country's history to get the most from your visit

that was a very complete museum that describe the history of money in Indonesia, and had a lot of samples of all money that used to use by Indonesian community. kids have a lot of fun to see all of that things. maybe they can make another videos that can make kids or visitors more interest.

This is an excellent museum to learn some of the history of banking in Indonesia and even some of the general history of the country. At first, I thought this wouldn't be a great visit because when we got there no one seemed interested in giving us directions or telling us where to start. But once we figured it out,... More
