    Not particularly fans of museums we wanted to try the one above for the link with Balinese culture and it was a treat tables with sober and effective comment, fine buildings, beautiful park and a Thai restaurant not first prize, but to the impeccable quality

    4.25 stars. Entrance fee is 80k and it comes with coffee or iced tea. It's much bigger than I thought. The artwork is magnificent and is just enough (not too much). International and traditional paintings. There are many things to see here and the grounds are beautiful. Perfect for a short afternoon and it was relatively quiet around lunchtime. The cafe is also nice. Food is priced well and really tasty.

    Great collection of Balinese art to see the evolution through recent centuries. The facilities, buildings and gardens are very nice and we even managed to see the school girls practising Balinese dance as part of the foundation work they do. It was probably the least touristy and more cultural visit we've managed to sample during our trip. There is a complimentary drink and we got a coconut pancake as well on the inside cafe overlooking some of the gardens. Definitely worth the money.

    Nice paintings spread across several buildings in a park like environment. Very tranquil setting and relatively few tourists.

    Saw some interesting art and learned a bit more about Balinese culture. Not a 'must do', but I enjoyed the visit. It's set in some beautiful gardens. Entrance is 80k per person but you get a free tea or coffee of your choosing. It came with Balinese coconut cake which was lovely!
