  • A very good historical exhibition of the evolution of banking and trade in Indonesia. All exhibits are clearly marked in English and Indonesian. I enjoyed walking into the 2 huge vaults one of gold bullion and the other of coin and paper currencies from not only Indonesia but around the world. The international currencies were were poorly lit. The building itself has been restored and the stained glass windows were fabulous and well explained.
  • Love this museum. Very clean, tidy, and the ambience is great. Has many collections and there are lot of education as well.
  • Well presented large museum with advance technology, cheap ticket, a very good air conditioner, good place to take a photo. The museum boast a large collection and history of bank and money, focusing in Indonesia. It got gold ingot simulation and you would be surprise how heavy it is.
  • A Museum with a little touch of elegance of the colonial-era building comes with a fair price (free if you're a student)
  • Arguably the best museum in the city. Only National Museum (Museum Gajah) came close to this. Visually pleasing + nice collections 👍
