A look at the older Indonesia. One of the most beautiful buildings in the city. Well preserved. Was closed when I visited.

a totally complete experience of Indonesia independence history . would suggest to bring kids to Museum BI, on top of that you can do a museum marathon since many museums are around Museum BI (eg: Museum Bank Mandiri, Museum Wayang, etc)

Located in the heritage building with some good views for taking pictures, we can see the history of money-currency & banking in Indonesia. Very Informative. Only need 1,5-2 hours to round the area. Facility: large parking area, small cafe, renovated toilets, & small merchandise counter.

If you want to learn about the history of Indonesia currency, this is the place to visit. The self-guided tour has various historical information to offer. Expect to spend about 30 minutes walking around.

We spent 1 and 1/2 hours and learned so much about the economic collapse of 1997/1998 and how the rupiah went from 2,000 to 16,000 to the USD in a matter of days. Modern, good English displays and a great informational material.

Love it! the building might look old but they provide you a clean and modern museum to be looked around. They also give you a thorough understanding of the finance system revolution by giving us a history path. It's like you are walking through the time, from the old time to now.

This museum was byfar the most worth-it museum I visited around the Kota Tua area. One, it gives free entrance for college students (show your student card for evidence). Two, the service was alright. Three, they let you in with your professional cameras while keeping your other belongings safe in their locker area. Four, the place were well air-conditioned. Four,...

Amazing architecture, coloured glass, views and very well maintained. There is no entrance fee. It was opened to public as late as 2009 but it... More
