If you love money and everything to do with it, this museum is the place for you, and is a must visit when you are in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Living up to its name, this Museum Bank of Indonesia has everything there is to know and see about the history and money and banking in Indonesia. Founded by the Bank of Indonesia in 2009, this museum is inside a historic building in the Old Town of Jakarta named Kota Tua.
The guided tour of the museum will take you through the history from scratch, and if it’s your lucky day, you might get to see fun activities like movie screenings, book launches, and musical events.
If you are staying at one of the service apartments in Jakarta, at a place that is a short distance away from the museum, like the Somerset Grand Citra Jakarta, this trip will prove fruitful to all the future and existing accountants and financiers in your family.
Not one to fall back when it comes to technological advancements, the Museum Bank of Indonesia has showcases that incorporate the use of static panels, dioramas, televisions and electronic displays. Every Indonesian currency that has been in use since the 14th century until the present day can be found within the halls of this eccentric museum too.
