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.

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,...

The museum itself doesn't look much from the outside (just an old colonial era building) however when you enter the location you will find a collection of pre Bank Indonesia (central bank) which is in the colonial time until modern day. The collections are very interesting and curated in very interesting way. There was a game to grab virtual coin... More

When we arrived, the museum was temporarily closed for being full. However, it was re-opened after less than 15 minutes and we managed to get the tickets and entered. The space itself is a beautifully preserved antique building, with old-styled bank counter, wooden furniture, and several colorful stained glass windows. The exhibit was arranged chronologically and highly informative (though not... More
