“Beautiful architecture, excellent interactive displays and fascinating look on Indonesia's economy”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

The museum is located in the old kota (kota tua) district in central jakarta and is managed by Indonesia's central bank; Bank Indonesia. the museum's beautifully preserved architecture and excellent interactive displays inside would probably make it one of the best museums in Jakarta. Once inside, visitors are taken into a chronological journey to witness Indonesia's economic history from the very beginning since the colonial period to the asian financial crisis of 1998 and continuing to the present era. Beautiful diorama design, audio visual features and the museum's numismatic (coins and old money) collection makes the whole tour fascinating and definitely not boring. For all its excellent features admissions is free

“Not Just Storage for Old Stuffs”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

Museum Bank Indonesia has set an excellent sample of museum as a source of knowledge and not just a "storage" of old historical stuffs. Located in the old Bank Indonesia building in Jakarta's old town area, Museum Bank Indonesia gives historical education of Indonesia's early monetary system. The museum was very well runned and well faciliated with fun things to do for the youngsters.

“Well Managed”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

Old and major office building across Beos Station in Old Town of Jakarta. You could see history of the Indonesiaa's biggest bank in a relatively well maintained old builiding in Jakarta.
You could combine it with your plan to Monas, National Museum and Fatahillah Square .

“Is it in Indonesia?”
Reviewed 31 December 2011

Indonesia have many historical places and many people have never gone there. But if they go to BI Museum, it's 100% different.
All interior are very nice, cool with AC inside, nice lighting, presentation and unbelievable, this is a good place to learn more about Indonesian money history.
