The tickets cost IDR 5.000/person. It provides showcases about the history of Indonesia's economy and the bank itself. My favorite part of the museum is in a room where they show different types of countries' old currencies.

This first time visit for me and family, although I know this museum already exist couple years ago. Very interesting because we can see the history of money from beginning, when Indonesia start had money and produce/ printed the money. Here also display Indonesian money from time to time.

Not quite international standard but certainly the best museum in Jakarta. Although concerned about finance it offers a good insight to the origins and recent history of Indonesia.

I personally expected to learn a lot about Indonesia. I must agree I wasn't disappointed. Although there are specialized cultural and history museums in Indonesia, this one has a good summary view of all the heads one can imagine about a country. The museum is clean. Loved the Dutch section.

Free museum - good for those who wish to know more about banking history in Indonesia. They have a huge safe replica with fake gold for props, which is interesting to see the actual scale of these things beyond what is shown in movies.
