  • Uang kuno nya superb banget! Museumnya bersih dan masih brasa banget suasana zaman belandanya. Buat masuk bayar 5K dan kalo bawa tas harus nitip di tempat penitipan tas yang udah disediain sebelum nukerin tiket masuk di dalam. Cuma diperbolehin bawa dompet, dan ga boleh ada selempangnya! Aha. Instagrammable kalo yang hobi selfie dan aplot di sosmed. Sekian. Maaciiih.
  • This museum is really good. Bank Indonesia has put up a very nice exhibits, good collection of money from Indonesia and rest of the world. They have various room for display. There's a theatre inside although right now the presentation is for children only. The museum is not completely done, still some exhibition are in construction. All exhibits will be open in March 2018. The museum also have audio guide in several languages. Check the reception desk for detail on how to rent the audio guide device.
  • Very well organized with chronological history of money and banking in Indonesia. A bit tough explanation around the 1998 crisis. Good collection of old colonial and Indonesian monies and from other countries. The building is well maintained, now actually feeling like an old, small, european palace with a couple of inner courtyards. There is a cafe on the ground floor. Plenty of parking space.
  • Definitely recommend to everyone Honestly the Museums in Indonesia is so far so much better than any Museum I have been visited in SEA. CHEAP entrance fee is a BIG plus. This Bank museum is maintained so well, feel great when I get in. Entrance fee is 10k. Audio tour is available. You should spend 1-2 hours there, better come around 2pm.
  • This museum is so awesome. You can learn history with interesting way. The entry ticket for this museum cheap too, only 5k. You can bring your whole family and it is still cheap. In museum BI you have to entrust your belonging in the entry gate. You not allowed to bring your bag. Happy sight seeing!
