  • The Museum in Ubud. Building divided into four collections works great, but is also a good atmosphere. Ideal for watching the art stroll, and blooms and lush green trees in the courtyard and the Lotus pond. Still can't imagine from the hustle and bustle of the streets and be healed.

  • It was nice experience to see the beautiful paintings. Would recommend to all Indian travelers. Ticket was 85k idp for per person. (Tea included)
  • Great way to spend 1-2 hours wandering around the lush grounds and learning more about the development of all styles of Balinese painting. Admission price includes a glass of juice and dessert at the cafe (there's also a lunch option available).
  • This is really must to see when you are in Ubud. The museum is located in a nice garden, so just seeing the garden is a nice experience. It is 80000 rupiah, but they serve you two bottles of water and it is really quiet there, so you can enjoy your stay and read the stories behind each paintings. You are going to see paintings from different eras and it is just unusual comparing to what you can see in European museums. Go for it!
  • For a brief history of Ubud and Bali along with an introduction to their mythology and unique art work. Love their art work just not a big fan of how it was displayed in this tiny museum
  • A bit pricey but worth going to. Beautiful paintings and landscaping around
