Bank Indonesia Museum (Indonesian Museum Bank Indonesia) is a bank museum located in Jakarta, Indonesia. It was founded by Bank Indonesia and opened on 21 July 2009. The museum is housed in a heritage building in Jakarta Old Town that had been the first headquarters of the Netherlands Indies gulden (De Javasche bank), the central bank of the Dutch East Indies. The bank was nationalized as Bank Indonesia in 1953, after Indonesia gained its independence. It is located next to Bank Mandiri Museum.
De Javasche Bank was formed in 1828 as a circulation bank of the Dutch East Indies and was responsible for issuing Netherlands Indies Guldens. The building stood in a plot that had been Batavia's Inner Hospital (in Dutch: "Binnenhospital" named "inner" due to its location being inside the wall), which was built in the early 18th century and was abandoned in 1780, as the central hospital was moved to Weltevreden. The building was sold to the trade firm Mac Quoid Davidson & Co. in 1801, and was purchased by De Javasche bank in 1831.

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.

Its a cool place to spend 30 minutes, you can see coins and bank notes used by the countries around the world, you can hold a replica of a gold bar, and see a stack of it. The architecture was made during colonial period, so it's quite attractive for some people. All of that for just 5k IDR (less than 50cent)

Super duper loooove this place. The place where full of history about Bank in Indonesia. If you want to educate yourself about Bank, come to this place. Recommended. Don't forget about the architecture, because it is beautiful, feels like they bring us back to the colonial era. Worth a visit!

A very nice museum with lots of details and history. One of my go to place when going out with the nieces & nephew. It is an interactive museum and the staffs are very informative. Not many realized this, but it has a huge parking space at the back lot. Also have a huge mosque. If you're hungry, there is a canteen at the front part of the building.

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!

A really good museum with extensive historical information. Learned a lot of things about the rise and fall of local currency; the monetary crisis. They shows how paper and coin currency was made, which is interesting. The museum is big and clean, and for the entrance fee of a water bottle, it's surprisingly in a very good condition. There are tours if you are really interested, too.

Very good experience with economy history. Nice interior and interactive get more up to date. Ticket price is Rp 5.000,- and you can not bring bags (no matter how big or small the bag is). They give a bag to keep the valuables to carry. The canteen is very nice too. Toilets are clean and tidy. It's where you could find a free and nice toilet around Kota Tua.

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.

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.

A nice museum, I came on Tuesday and it was relatively quiet, only me and a few people were there. The museum was clean and organized. You can see the history of Indonesian banking and economy here. And my favorite part was the money room where you can see all of the money that have been used in Indonesia and also other countries currency.

The museum is one of a worth-to-visit old building in Jakarta. You can have a nice walk around the museum, take a good picture, as well as learn the history. They have a lot of interesting stuff. It's cool.

A very stunning building. Feels like we travelling around Europe old building. I recommend you to visit this museum. Very educating museum. We can learn about money from Hindu-Buddhaa Kingdom era until now. Very recommended for you guys who loves history.

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

This museum is great, you can learn many knowledge about the history of money in Indonesia from hundreds of years ago. Recommended if you like to learn about money histories. The architecture of the museum looks really great, it feels like we're in europe. This place has air conditioning, so you don't have to worry about the hot weather outside.

Equipped with interactive media makes this museum super entertaining and far from boring. Yet with these things the entrance fee is not pricey (ps: if you're a student you could get inside the museum for free!) One of the best museum in Indonesia

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.
