Indonesia Bank Museum Reviews & Ratings
Museum Bank Indonesia located in the own town of Jakarta, so it's not difficult to find. And this is a must visit when you pass by the old town area. And that will be great if they are selling souvenir coins from Indonesia. The exhibitions in the museum is about not only about the bank, but also related to Indonesia history. Exhibitions from first day of bank to the modern banking. And its history is not only limited to the good thing in Indonesia, but its all around and including its riot history. There are two interesting part of this museum. One is the gold vault, which contain lot of gold bar in there(not sure are they real). The second one is the collection of banknotes all around the world
Had a great experience! The place is spacious and the exhibits are very interesting and informative. Be sure to arrive before 2 p.m if you want to watch the Immersive Cinema of the building's history. All this you can enjoy for almost no cost! Very recommended
Beautiful well-maintained building, inside and outside. Nice, smart presentation using both audio visual and interactive media such as the explanation on paper money, inflation, e-book etc. A thorough history of monetary and banking system in Indonesia. Too bad, guide service is only provided on group tour. Fortunately, when we were there, there was a school group that we could tag along. Guide was very good, shared interesting story behind the object etc, quite knowledgeable, except on monetary crisis details.
One of the many museums around Jakarta's old town. This place is managed by Bank Indonesia, to showcase the history of Indonesia's economic policies, system, reforms, etc from the beginning of Indonesia's long history. Place is very well maintained, air conditioned, as well as good service from the staffs around. Even during weekends, this place is never overcrowded, so even if you don't have much time, a visit to this museum is a must.
Actually it is a very good place to visit if you want to know more about the monetary history of Indonesia. But you must spare extra time for your visit since it is located in a very crowded traffic, i am 99% sure you'll be trapped in traffic jam on your way to / from this museum, especially if you drive / ride your own car / bike. You cannot bring anything except id card, wallet and cellphone, even water bottle is not allowed. Inside, you will find many information about monetary system, historic figures, money that has ever used in Indonesia. The information so detailed and made you think that reading it is more important than take a photo itself 😅 I recommend you to visit it as individual, not follow a group activity. This museum is rarther big and since a group activity will always follow the schedule given by the committee, so you only has a little time to enjoy all of the collection here. Despite of that, i respect for one that still choose museum as their vacation agenda since most of locals do not visit museum much.
