Thanks to Bank of Indonesia who have been doing maintenance of this great architecture building. The museum let us know about the history of bank notes. Very well informed for the visitors. Including the history of the building. A second of must visit museum after the museum of national.

If you are a foreign traveler and this is your first time visiting Jakarta, you should visit this museum. Placed in Kota, where you will experience Jakarta ambiance when it still mentioned as 'Batavia' hundred years ago.

The museum will let you understand how was the economy history and trend in Indonesia since the independence day.

Really... actually most museum in Jakarta has great content, but little curation, save this one. This reminds me of the mint museum in Washington DC and perhaps it is because many of the Bank Indonesia directors spent lots of their time shuttling to that museum during their visits to the capitol. Multi media and interactivity is the word and I really hope that someone will expand the collection and offering of this museum one day.

This museum for me just ok. But, if you want other attraction in jakarta, you should visit here..!

Entry price is cheap.. but parking area a little bit difficult. The traffic so bad

The location is very easy to reach by Transjakarta bus or train. We can learn much of Indonesia's bank history. It's free. But you have to report your camera if you want to take any picture in the museum. You can find not only Indonesian money, but also other countries money. It's well managed and complete. The architecture of the building is also nice to enjoy.
