  • We were lucky enough to have a partially engaged tour. The guide revealed unusual things that we would have otherwise missed. Amazing out of the ordinary museum. Don’t miss picture with the birds!  more »
  • I can only say that I would have loved to meet Don Antonio Blanco in person...an exceptional artist with creativity to spare. His paintings express his love an reverance for the female form for...  more »
  • This so called "museum" is nothing more then a homage to the ego of a vainglorious man daring to compare himself to Salvador Dali. The most expensive museum 100,00 Idr. There is nothing but his own...  more »

  • A nice clean area to walk around and see paintings of a woman. Some paintings are nude paints so may not be appropriate for kids depending on Indonesian culture but overall nice painting though I may not be an art master, I still able to say that. The atmosphere is great, and it has place to take pictures with birds too
  • Interesting museum consisting of a downstairs room, and upstairs room, two balconies and around 3 other smaller rooms containing various paintings of Blanco's. Only a small amount of them have artists notes. The building alone is worth the 100k entry fee. No photos allowed inside the building and you will be escorted around to view the paintings. Upon exiting you have an opportunity to take photos with some beautiful birds, they are all very friendly and seem to be well loved, I witnessed several staff members sweet talking and kissing them and the birds we responsive to our sweet talking too. They are not caged nor tied down.
  • I found this a pleasant experience to visit within the heart of Ubud but I wouldn't be telling anyone to put it on their must do's while visiting. After walking up the steep drive entrance you walk through to some beautiful grounds with birds and a fountain, which makes up the entrance to the museum. Once you're inside there are two medium sized levels to walk through. You eventually exit through the studio and are greeted with a complimentary drink (included in ticket price of 100k).
  • As a student of art, this museum was simply breathtaking and quite inspiring. The entire building captures Blaco's art style—from the floors to the columns—so well (with the designs, colors and textures) that it seems as if the museum jumped straight from his painting. One popular criticism is that Blanco had a strange obsession with breasts and sex—and I would have to agree—but visiting this museum has left me with so many ideas for my own pieces that I have to forgive him for that. In conclusion, this museum is a must-see for any admirer of art and definitely stands out from all the other (rather bleak) contenders. Edit: one con is that, from what I can tell, the price of admission is steadily increasing! Once 30k, the ticket is now 100k!
  • Very interesting museum set in beautiful grounds. Museums arent usually my kind of thing but it was really good here and worth the trip.
