  • 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!
  • 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).
  • Need renovation in some part. Marketing museum is good enough. Overall the ticket price is expensive
  • Not giving any specific impression, just seeing pictures (which many great pictures) and some statue. Also have a standard restaurant.
  • Great place to see balenese art throught the ages.
