  • Loved everything about this place. The architecture is historic, the collections seemed so complete and fascinating, who knew the government once released a gold coin worth IDR 750k in 1990? The interior too — the wood paneling and the furnitures were beautifully put together. Visited this museum twice, a few years ago and just now. Amazed then, amazed now.
  • This museum is definitely must see. Not just for foreign tourist but to all Indonesian children. At least it will give them good respect to the history and colonial architecture building. The building is highly preserved with new paints. During nights also really beautiful. This museum show and tell the museum attendees about how the first bank in Indonesia established and operates.
  • The museum has huge potential to be the center for learning about our financial system, and the history of our nation, in a fun and interactive way. But it stays as as potential. The flow of information is pretty clear and chronogical but the lack of interactive and hi-tech display is a disppointment. The highlight is of course what's inside the vault. Go see for yourself.
  • I love this museum.. The architecture and the wood furniture are very beautiful, designed by Dutch architect and it gives information about Indonesian history of banking, money and economy in general especially on the era of colonialism. The information shown with interactive interface. The ticket is quite cheap and the museum also full of air conditioner so it is very comfortable to enjoy all of museum collection.
  • I love this museum because it gives information about Indonesian history of banking, money and economy in general especially on the era of collonialism. This museum is an old building designed by Dutch architect. The use of IT devices to show the information is interactive. Visitors will learn something new here. The entrance ticket is quite cheap, only five thousand rupiah (about 0.4 US dollar). The museum is also full of air conditioner so it is very comfortable to enjoy all of museum collection.
