  • I enjoyed everything about this place. Well interpreted and nice artwork. Lovely tea too. Thank you.  more »
  • Very nice Museum ranging from painting to photography. We see works of Balinese, the influence that the Balinese painting has had with the different approach. There are also works of Europeans who lived in Bali, as well as a pavilion of photography that highlights the Balinese daily life in the 1970s. All in a beautiful setting.

  • Close to Ubud Centre and have a garden transposes the whole room. About painting the pre-modern what is feels very modern-day may be.

  • The traditional Balinese paintings get repetitive after a while, especially when there is very little information available about them, sometimes not even names are displayed. The collection of highly expressive wooden sculptures, though few, are exquisite and worth a visit. The ambience is nice but the price is very steep at 80k IDR pax.
  • A fascinating gallery, mainly of very good quality religious Balinese art. Pricey at 80kR, but well worthwhile for the quality of the pieces. Price includes a drink at the museum café.
  • Nice exhibition showcasing eclectic balinese modernist art
  • great place to take a break from the busy ubud and see some Indonesian Art
  • A very impressive museum of modern Balinese art featuring various artistic styles.
