The building heritage with good maintenance. For muslim traveler we can shalat in mosque in backyard building. Easy to take public transportation. No reastaurant or cafe in building area, so area is clean, if you want to eat or drink, you cross over the street to Taman Fatahillah (one of object traveling)

This museum took place in the heritage building, a real bank operated in dutch colonial era, so you may feel 1920s ambiance in the main hall, resembling Great Gatsby film for me. The tour starts in the main hall. Previously used as reception area, this museum show graphic and mural of people doing bank transaction, so we may imagine how... More

I think it's one of the modern museum in Jakarta.. Well equipped with AC and screen which will tell you the history of Indonesian money. it's quite dark inside so you maybe want to be careful if you bring children

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
