  • This place it's amazing, the ticket is very cheap, it just 5000 Rupiah. The collection of this museum is pretty complete, from the kingdom era to modern day. And my favourite section on this museum is the section of money all over the world. And the last one, the museum is well air conditioned, so if you visit around this place, come check it out
  • Its over my expectation because the museum is very cozy and neat. We learn a lot in this museum. I thought we going spent little time here but 1 hour is not enough. So many things about indonesian banking and financial histories we can find here. Its very cheap compare to the knowledge we got.
  • The museum is great! It has very detailed explanation of money. From the money used at the time when kingdom rules indonesia, up until now. Not just that, they also have collection from other country's currency! The place is good if you want to learn about money history. For me, its hard to find toilets, though you can ask one of the guard or staff for it.
  • Went to this building a while ago. According to the guide, this museum is the first museum in Indinesia that spurs the concept of modernity. Adapting theatrical-historical flow with abundant information to read and hear, this museum is the quintessence of banking history in Indonesia. A lot of historical items, marks, and rooms are still original and well-conditioned. FYI, If you are a student you'll get a free pass. Best to book a guided tour to know better all of knowledge available here. Fun fact: there's a 'Fort Knox' like chamber where you can see and feel an original gold ingot.
  • Museumnya paling bersih dan rapi di kawasan kota tua. Tempatnya juga adem dan desain gedungnya yang putih membuat nuansanya terasa klasik dengan instalasi museum yang modern. Di belakang samping juga ada mushola yang cukup luas dan nyaman.
