#4 of 78 in Museums in Bali
Pay a visit to Museum Puri Lukisan, the oldest art museum in Bali. Specializing in modern Balinese paintings and wood carvings, the collection here provides a fine introduction to the island's artistic heritage and social history. With many powerful pieces focusing on the War of Independence, the gallery offers a running commentary on political and cultural flashpoints and their fallout, as well as the development of aesthetic considerations. See the stylistic conversations between artists of different schools played out in the well-arranged exhibits, and admire the contrasts and similarities that come with different eras, mindsets, and personalities.

  • This is such a beautiful museum. It was raining the day we visited. And the commute between four buildings was such a pleasure. There is art for sale here as well. Must visit for art and culture buffs...  more »
  • The museum is average in design and delivery. We came here early morning one day, and went through the museum at our own pace. The whole thing took us one hour to complete, but it would have been more...  more »
  • The pamphlet says Ubud's oldest art museum. There was a time was the world first touch is required. East-West North-South and four buildings. It is a very peaceful place and playing the instruments is checked at the entrance of the second one, the third is no. In the cafeteria serving drinks are free of charge. Grand was the service. Ticket Office who is very kind, thank you lent calls. RP 85,000

  • The museum has a beautiful garden as the setting for the four galleries of exhibitions of Balinese paintings. The paintings are mainly Balinese traditional art and very interesting and beautiful. I wish there were more explanations in English for some of the art work. The entrance tickets included a drink and cake at the museum cafe but we did not pay attention to read the tickets. I wish we could be made aware of this because after two hours of touring the museum we could use some refreshments. The price was good if we could have the chance to enjoy the drink and cake. Nice introduction to Balinese traditional art.
  • A perfect place to know about Balinese' history of art especially painting and carving. It's a huge place and surrounded by gardens, typical of Balinese garden. I always love the Balinese paintings because it makes my imagination get active. Imagining Bali as in the pictures and I love how the artists see Bali and how they create it into the canvas. All of the paintings there are majestic and masterpiece. I almost spent about 1,5 hours to see all the collections. The ticket price is quite high around Rp85.000,00 for locals as me, but hey, the art is priceless and precious right?
  • Well worth a visit if you are interested in Balinese and wider Indonesian art, history and culture. There are several buildings to enter and discover permanent and temporary exhibitions. The grounds themselves are exceptionally well maintained.
  • Great for the cultural art peeps :) Local live instrumental makes it beautiful to visit. If u have time for sunset, stunning photos for memory!
  • If you have time and are into art it's definitely worth seeing but otherwise don't feel sorry if you had to skip it.
