  • A beautiful collection of traditional art spanning over multiple eras of Balinese history. 150000 rupiah to enter, which seems steep but is well worth it. The pre war art was my personal favourite, but the modern collection is definitely worth a look as it touches on western influence within Bali.
  • Love this museum of Balinese art set amongst gardens, ponds and moss covered stone carvings. Some artifacts include little stories explaining the legends which I really enjoyed reading. A peaceful way to spend couple of hours in Ubud. Ticket includes refreshments in the cafe.
  • The paintings were stunning. If you're an art history lover, I recommend this place. The ticket price was 85000r.p pp and that included a drink at their cafe when you were done adoring the artwork.
  • This is a nice museum dedicated to Balinese art. There are 4 buildings, each housing works from different eras of art. Entrance fee is IDR 85,000. If you want a meal to be included, you can purchase a different ticket for a higher price. You will get a map of the place which will guide you through the best route to take through the museum. Each painting has a detailed description about it in Bahasa as well in English.
  • It was one deep experience. Entrance fee is at IDR 85,000 for both foreigners or local. Large parking space and located in central of Ubud. Artworks are magnificent. Well maintained lotus ponds and garden.
