“Interesting historic building with comical exhibits”
Review of Mandiri Museum

Mandiri Museum
Ranked #36 of 252 things to do in Jakarta
Attraction details
Reviewed 17 February 2018

Sitting right next to the Banking Museum, the Mandiri also exhibits the story of money and banking, but more focused on Indonesia. The building is vast, but the exhibits are quite comically awful. It is worth coming just to see how lame a museum can be. Despite the paucity of what's here, the price is double the entrance fee of next door's better Banking Museum, but it's all relative. The cost is IR10,000 which is about US$0.70. Peanuts. Check out the downstairs vaults, which have endless rows of safes, whereas the main floor has loads of 70s and 80s typewriters and computer keyboards in glass cabinets. It's too comical for words. It's the building you come for and the stained glass on the main staircase is indeed worth the entrance fee alone.

This Mandiri Museum was located beside Museum Indonesia bank. I didn't understand why similar museum was located beside. I and my son visited this museum for knowing Indonesian money history. There was not bad, not good, but it worth to visit once, I think.

The museum provides a brief overview of the history of national banking in Indonesia, namely: Bank Mandiri. Bank Mandiri's ancestors are: Nederlandsche handles Maatschappij (NHM, which is the VOC reincarnation), Nationale Handelsbank (NHB), Nederlandsch Indische Escompto Maatschappij (NIEM) dan Bank Industri Negara (BIN).
Historical trajectory of how these banks later changed the name and ownership then became the national bank until finally the merger became Bank Mandiri, well described.
After that, you will be taken to see the objects used in the bank's operations, especially the early days. In addition you will also be introduced with some banking terms and their example examples, again, especially in the early days. So you can feel the atmosphere of how banking operations in the era before the computer was used.
