Recommendation by Lemi
Money is the language Bank Indonesia Museum speaks to tell the city’s story. They incorporate loads of dioramas, audio-visual displays, and even a case of gleaming (fake) gold into the mix. Trace the ebb and flow of Indonesia’s financial history through the early days in the spice trade, the Indies’ banking system, the Japanese occupation, and an economic crisis in 1997. Tours are conducted from Tuesday to Sunday at 8:00AM, 10:00AM, and 1:00PM. The building itself has historical significance. It was the first headquarters of the Netherlands Indies Gulden, which is the central bank of colonial Indonesia. Even as the nation fell under Japanese rule in 1942, the bank maintained its power. Now, it serves to chronicle the eventful past of the city.
