Museum Puri Lukisan, Ubud

#4 of 47 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.

    4 rooms with paintings, not very good lighting, not much to see. An hour is enough to enjoy the site.  more »

    Should an art lover with an appropriate background knowledge you really be like this museum certainly represent a widening of horizons. Who is equipped only with a common understanding of the art will be rather disappointed. After all, the garden and the Café are a wonderful oasis of peace and relaxation at the Touristengeplagten Ubud. Flora and fauna are very impressive and a long walk worth.

    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).
