  • Hundreds of colourful and intriguing masks and shadow puppets from Bali and at least a dozen other countries expertly displayed in 5 artfully restored hundred plus year old traditional Balinese and Ja...  more »
  • Museum of masks and Balinese theatre in magnificent pavilions wooden. The presentation of the objects is well highlighted and the place is quiet and relaxing. We were the only ones in the Museum. The collections range from the oldest to the most recent (you can even see a barack Obama puppet!) It is a must-see for all those who are interested in Balinese culture.

  • This is one of the best museums in Indonesia. It's free, well maintained, clean and almost complete. The great stage and small fields are also a plus!  more »

  • This place is amazing because it’s in the middle of nowhere and far away from tourists. I was its only visitor today and I even got to take a nap overlooking the rice terraces. The masks are amazing. I’m so glad it’s so quiet and peaceful there. Clean grounds, toilets/facilities to use. I did not eat at the cafe, but totally worth visiting!
  • Excellent location to see traditional puppets, mask etc. This museum ie well kept and curated. See to believe. Do ask for someone to guide to better appreciate. The best thing is not that entry is free but the vast collection displayed in a few buildings. All are authentic not fabricated. Although some items are not carded, most are. After the visit, do have a drink at the cafe. The breeze is refreshing. Highly recommended location.
  • A little out of the way but well worth the effort to get there. Masks from various countries beautifully displayed in 6 buildings within a beautifuly landscaped compound. The docent gave us a private tour explaining various collections.
  • One of those places you go to without high expectations and get blown away. Beautifully curated and maintained - a lot of love has gone in to this place. Cute little cafe too : )
  • Impressive collection of masks and puppets from around the world. The museum is well organized in different rooms (masks, puppets, local, foreign) you can visit what interests you most. The entrance is free but they receive donations, which are well deserved.
