  • Unlike most of the museums on the island of Bali which feature paintings, wood carvings, etc., this one provides a fine introduction to the culture of Bali. The grounds are quite nice and the exhibits...  more »
  • This average appreciation is certainly not the case for the four buildings and the grounds in which the museum is located, for that would be ' excellent ' fit better. Also the historical collection is definitely worth it, but the big tame in my eyes is that none of the sometimes really special objects is dated, itself not approximate. We had a guide who did and at every object could tell exactly how this a place in the life of the Balinese. He told it still has that place and even after repeatedly asking we got inconclusive about the time of Genesis, discovery or use. Frustrating when you want to know. By the way, are all captions, which briefly describe the subject, also in English.

  • The Museum consists of several pavilions representing various exhibits on the history and religion of Bali. Each exhibit has a sign in English, also on the walls hang posters and pictures. All informative and understandable. The territory is maintained, there is a small pond with fish and, of course, cats. Minus that, the museum itself is not very big, I walked around for 30 minutes and without the aid of a guide not unbundle where to go. At the entrance sits a guard and requires a 50000 rupees. I think it is possible to bargain. Plus you bugging you guide, which also have to pay. To take or not to take a guide a difficult question. On the one hand, it will not tell you anything other than what is written on posters, on the other hand hold on the territory and you all will see.

  • Beautiful place, but as soon as we got out of the taxi we were taken « in charge » by a man who was apparently a guide, we didn’t even understand what was going on. The entry fee is 50.000 Rp per person and the guide asked on top 100.00 Rp for the tour, we said no and he got angry and we thought we would be left alone after that, but the angry guide sent one of his friend to give us the tour (we didn’t even ask for a guide!) so we said ok for 50.000 Rp for the tour and at the end of the tour the guide asked for extra and wanted us to go with his taxi friend and pay 300.00 Rp, at this point we just ignored him and left. Be careful if you expect just a museum where you gonna walk around and chill, the rip offs are waiting for you at every corner which made us lose any interest in the place and we just wanted to get out of there. Pity.
  • The museum is very nice although it is worth while to ask for a guide because they are very knowledgeable. On my first trip I paid To 50k for a guide. Beware of people near the gate who sell flutes and hand painted/printed calendars and other items. These items can be found very cheap at the traditional market at Tabanan (Pasar Bringkit) or the art market at Sukawati. The prices of the food vendors in front of the museum are locally priced. Satay Babi Rp 15000 and cold bottled tea Rp 5000. The adjacent park is very nice and often has something interesting to see.
  • Friendly receptionists, two humble ladies,who will accompany you through the history of Bali. Even though, the museum was a little bit unfurnished and some showcases were empty or damaged, you could get a glimpse of where Bali came from, originated from.. come here and enjoy a humble ride..
  • Great place to explore the Balinese history and the lovely gardens. The price is rather reasonable (50k idr px) but you don't learn a lot in most of the rooms without a tour guide which can end up doubling the cost of the visit. It would be good if they setup an audio tour which gave more information.
  • A good place to understand more about Balinese culture!! The architecture of the museum is beautiful as well!
