The Bank Museum in Jakarta, Indonesia is a fascinating array of olde worlde and existing currencies. Each country has been meticulously documented and preserved inside a filing system of sliding glass cases. Apparently counterfeit currency is a problem in this country.

The Dutch architecture is really awesome. It's worth visiting to learn about economic/banking history of Indonesia. The booth and exhibition are beautifully displayed, good to take pictures with.

Housed in an imposing whitewashed building of neo-renaissance architecture, it has a wide range of exhibits/artifacts, providing visitors with audio and visual experience on history of currencies and trade in Indonesia from bygone eras to the present. To those interested in how the Indonesia's... More

This museum located side by side with Museum Bank Mandiri in Kota Tua area. It's better if you should Museum Bank Mandiri first before visiting this museum. They have modern technology to showcase the history of monetary in Indonesia as well as Indonesian Tradition. You should ask the Museum Crew about the location of toilet, because it's not clearly marked.

Interesting way to get into indonesian history, just before the Netherlands slavery; the inside patio it's amazing all white painted; the most interesting thing is that keeps original furniture from Netherlands colonialism times.

The tickets cost IDR 5.000/person. It provides showcases about the history of Indonesia's economy and the bank itself. My favorite part of the museum is in a room where they show different types of countries' old currencies.

This bank museum is located at a big old colonial building previously used as the bank's own building. The building itself is already nice and full of architectural decorations, whilst the display tells more about the history of the central bank related to the part of the history of Indonesia. They provide museum tour guides in english if you need... More

I totally love it. too bad that I came a bit late so couldn't see everything because they were going to close. but it is a recommended place for foreign or local toutists
