Taman Nusa, Sidan

4.3
#3 of 13 in Parks in Gianyar
Steep yourself in Indonesian history at Taman Nusa, a cultural park that showcases the country's diverse culture and history. The variety of exhibits here walk you through the prehistoric era, various kingdoms and the colonial period, present-day Indonesia, and even the future. Don a traditional costume for a photo opportunity, or enjoy the arts, crafts, and even live music in the museum. Explore the cultural village's 60 structures, each from a different island and time period. Some of the houses are authentic--transported and rebuilt onsite--and it's a real architectural treat to compare their various styles and traits. As you walk along the park, you'll pass many cafes and eateries, perfect for a quick break and some refreshment. Using our custom trip planner, Gianyar attractions like Taman Nusa can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Cultural-Ethnographic Park Taman Nusa, unfortunately, is not one of the top tourist destinations of Bali, but in vain! This is a unique place. A few hours sightseeing as if you will visit all corners of Indonesia. Understand how this huge country, what different people live here, how difficult was the path of self-determination for locals-can only here. In the Park are wonderful Russian and English-speaking guides. The building itself is striking in its scale and carefully thought out. Indonesia is an extraordinary country and it ends dalekone Bali Island, neighbouring Java and Sumatroj (as previously thought). Be prepared to spend on the legs from 3 to 6:00, depending on the speed of your movement. Better go here on an overcast day. Despite the fact that the territory of the Park fairly shady-spend so much time on their feet again and under the Sun will be difficult. But very very interesting. If you go to the Park alone be ready, that it is not very easy to find. Pointers as there are none. Better use search Google maps. Maps.me maps indicate the wrong coordinates and the road.

  • We heard about Taman Nusa, did a bit of research, and decided to check it out. We are so glad we did! This is one of the best attractions Bali has to offer. The tag line, “See Indonesia in One Afternoon”, is apt; however, it just doesn’t do justice to the level of thought, attention, and detail that has gone into making this attraction worthy of any “top 5” lists for Bali. From the authentic traditional houses (some shipped by boats from remote corners of Indonesia for Taman Nusa) to the local ethnic folks displaying their crafts, dance, and music, everything they do at Taman Nusa is of the highest authenticity, quality, and educational value. This is no cheap tourist attraction; if you truly would like to learn about Indonesia’s rich cultural heritage, this is probably the best place to do so. If you have 2-3 hours in Bali - just go, you won’t regret it, and you honestly won’t find a better use of your time in Bali. Bring your DSLR - this is no selfie destination - and mosquito repellent, as the leafy surroundings do lend themselves to bugs.
  • Enjoyable day. Appreciate the buggy for me with dodgy knee. Good food and guides are most informative.
  • Fantastic place to learn indonesian culture in 2 hours.Houses are either playing own traditional music,dance or perform activities such as ikat waving,mask/topeng creating,rattan waving.However we visit place after rain was heartbraking to see many of those beatiful houses roof leaking,hopefuly they will repair in dry season
  • You can learn a lot of Indonesian culture and history here, it's a really big area where you see many different houses, at some of them they play traditional music. A guide will always be at your side and explain you everything.
  • A very good place to know Indonesia culture, history and provinces . Place are huge and all staff are well educated. Ticket starting from Rp.350.000 , you need at least one hour to explore all the place
