#2 of 6 in Museums in Denpasar
Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • Museum outside looks beautiful! Beautiful architecture! Paintings are all neglected. Mold, moisture stains and holes in the paintings. In addition there are some copies that are printed on cheap plastic. Sorry, but.

  • Oh well, so sorry that it has not been possible to preserve the paintings better. But that what you see hang is beautifully painted, it is only quite all discolored. Nevertheless, I found it fun to take a look because the story of the painter and how he lived here in this House is beautiful. Anyway, watch yourself. It is not a top museum yet so touching.

  • Huge potential ruined by disinterested local authorities. Horrendously discoloured printed replicas of good, strong art. This place should be buzzing with tourists, have ORIGINALS on display and continuously restorated. Looks pretty much deserted. We had to search for someone to take our money for the tickets.
  • Good art not well manage. Hardly to notice due to covered with tent and warung
  • 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.
  • Cheap ticket. Faded artwork.

Where to stay in Denpasar

Beachside hotels and resorts in Denpasar offer relaxing options, though prices remain high in accommodations with many facilities and good views. Many locals offer rooms for rent, while rental apartments provide another affordable and slightly more private alternative. Search farther away from the waterfront for lower rates, offered by basic hotels and budget villas.
