Museum BI

Start;Home;Services;bukan default.aspx


Background

The BI Museum is located in the disused De Javasche Bank building in the Old Town of Jakarta, a location steeped in historical significance. The Government designated the site a cultural heritage building in accordance with Jakarta Gubernatorial Decree No. 475 of 1993.

 
Preservation of the building is consistent with Jakarta government policy to declare the Old Town as an area of historical significance.  As a pioneer of cultural heritage revitalisation in the Old Town, Bank Indonesia presents a trove of knowledge concerning Bank Indonesia’s role and contribution in the historical journey of Indonesia, while elaborating the motivation behind Bank Indonesia's policies over time.

 
These were the main considerations that built awareness concerning the importance of a Bank Indonesian Museum.

 
 

Goals

Supporting development of the Old Town as a tourist destination in Jakarta, it is fitting for the Bank Indonesia Building, which has received cultural heritage status from the Government, to be used as the Bank Indonesia Museum.  The goals of establishing and maintaining the Bank Indonesia Building in Jakarta Old Town are as follows:​
 
  1. ​​​Means of BI Policy Communication
    The BI Museum has a function of socialising the various policies issued by Bank Indonesia to ensure the public knows and understands the latest BI policies.
  2. ​​2. A Place to Collect, Store and Maintain Numismatic Collections and Historical Documents​
    The broad diversity of numismatic items and historical documents collected during the central bank's journey are managed, curated and presented comprehensively on public display.
  3. ​​​​​​​3. Means of Edutainment (Education-Entertainment)
    The BI Museum is also a means of edutainment, providing technology-based learning facilities on central banking.
