Le Mayeur Museum, Sanur

(2.9/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Browse the collection of art at Le Mayeur Museum, the former home of Belgian painter Adrien-Jean Le Mayeur de Merpres. The collection includes both the artist's own works and his collection of Balinese cultural artifacts. Although Le Mayeur only intended to visit Bali for a few months in 1932, he stayed for good after falling in love with a young legong dancer who became his lifelong muse. Sadly, the sea air has damaged the poorly protected paintings, but even faded, they still display the artist's great skill. With our international travel planner, Denpasar attractions like Le Mayeur Museum can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • The artwork on display is lovely but it is a bit painful to see how damaged some of the artworks are by the harsh sunlight and humidity. An interesting place to visit but it would be even more impress...  more »
  • a charming residence in Sanur Beach, where you can see how this original artist who settled in the island lived in 1932, took wife in the person of "Ni Pollok", which, she, is dedicated to photography. This little place and desert and apparently lack of means, but recounts an adventure and a touching romance. Reproductions of Le Mayeur paintings, but also originals, photos taken by, nor altogether a revelation! The House is decorated with furniture of l ' time, walls carved and painted, spectacular external reliefs... We want more!

  • ... and having read a number of reviews about how poorly maintained the exhibit is, along with the fact that the 'works' are just prints, I opted for a cold beer instead.  more »

  • Aloha great place to visit amazing place to visit..they also have accomadation pollock right on the beach
  • Peaceful.Lovely old buildings of Bali. Serenity. Well worth the visit.
  • perfect
  • Great unknown place and artist in Bali! Paintings are beautiful and wooden carved furnitures and facades are gorgeous detailed works, but unfortunately the whole house became museum is not well maintained and preserved. Paintings are exposed to humidity etc and furnitures r dusty and less appreciated as art pieces and antiques. Cheap entrance fee and should be taken more seriously. Still an inspiring place anyways...
  • Cheap ticket. Faded artwork.
