Bank Negara Museum and Art Gallery established by the country’s central bank; the Bank Negara Malaysia located in the Sasana Kijang Complex. Offers a multifaceted range of themes through its six permanent galleries: Children’s Gallery, the Bank Negara Malaysia Gallery, Economics Gallery, Islamic Finance Gallery, Numismatics Gallery and Art Gallery.
The purpose of the Museum is to educate the public on Malaysia’s economy and economic history as well as the Central Bank’s role in the nation’s economic development. It’s has a collection of ancient coins and money (and a slick interactive screen to examine their history).
Bank Negara Museum and Art Gallery divided to a gallery of the bank’s private art collection, a surreal 3m-long tunnel lined with RM1 million (in the Children’s Gallery), and a history of the Islamic banking system (which must comply with sharia law, including prohibitions against usury).
