Museum Puri Lukisan, Ubud

4.1
#4 of 18 in Museums in Ubud
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. Our Ubud tour itinerary planner makes visiting Museum Puri Lukisan and other Ubud attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Nice collection! You must see if you like arts and painting. Different style from museum in Europe.
  • Lovely tranquil garden setting with water features. Well laid out art pavilions. Restful cafe
  • In one of the buildings, many of the works were a print rather than the original... which was quite a bummer. Other than that, the museum is big, and some of the paintings date back to the 17th century
  • 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).

Where to stay in Ubud

Sayan Valley offers luxury accommodations atmospherically designed to fit the look and feel of the natural surroundings, with infinity pools, wooden lodges, and yoga-ready verandas aplenty. Less expensive alternatives are also available, albeit with fewer amenities and a little less isolation. If you wish to stay in Ubud itself, look for charming and inexpensive rooms rented by local families (with many including breakfast in the cost), or consider the pricier single-occupancy apartments.
