Bank Negara Money Museum
The Money Museum has an interesting display of old Malaysian currency, commemorative and rare coins and also foreign currencies."
Bank Negara Malaysia started issuing its own currency in 1967 and since 1979, it has been purchasing coins sporadically with the objective of setting up its own Money Museum.
Furthermore, as the Bank regularly receives many visitors each year, including school children and VIPs, the Bank felt it would also be desirable to display its collection and preserve the national heritage by having a public museum to show the evolution of money in the country from early to modern times.
The plan to have an authoritative depository for the Bank's growing numismatic collection became a reality with the opening of the Money Museum on 5 April 1989. It was officially opened by Datin Seri Dr Siti Hasmah Mohamed Ali, wife of the Malaysian Prime Minister, Dato' Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad, in conjunction with the thirtieth Anniversary of Bank Negara Malaysia.Located in the Bank Negara building at Jalan Dato' Onn, the Money Museum has an interesting display of old Malaysian currency, commemorative and rare coins and also foreign currencies.
Bank Negara's Money Museum is a work of art in itself. The money museum was opened in 1989. From the ornate carvings of the 100-year-old teak palace door at the ground floor entrance to the panels, shelf designs and lighting. Every line and every curve tells a story.
Opening hours: 9am to 4pm (Mondays to Fridays) and 9am to 5pm (Saturday)
