    It's a very interesting museum with good collections. Unfortunately when I was there last week, they were under renovation, so only three rooms were opened. Also, you can't bring any bag to enter the museum.

    Not so bad. First time visit is too crowded cuz many children from school so we not focus and enjoy to see the diorama and things inside. Your bag will be entrusted to the staff and you get the number. So better take out and save yourself, phone and money from your bag for safety reasons.

    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.
