  • Love it. It's free to enter too. Parking is free when I went. Sadly I think not a lot of people know about this place. Great place for kids or anyone to learn about banking services. There's an art museum and games and exhibitions... I would say it's a good place for schools to bring their students for a field trip.
  • A nice place to just relax during a hot day of sightseeing. A hot uphill walk from Bandaraya station but the building is beautiful. I wasn't really interested in 60% of it but the stuff there was mostly quite informative (actually made me want to do further reading about the economic history).
