  • It was a tour of the JTB's. Early in the morning to the visitors could watch slowly. Story has been in the painting, and Japan-language commentary is interesting.

  • This museum is historically interesting for artists and art lovers - but some urgent attention should be paid to try to preserve some of the very old paintings that are rotting away. The newest (and o...  more »
  • As much as the garden is beautiful, the location itself already defines what we found-paintings and wood carvings, in your most. I paid the value of Rp 85,000, which gave the right to input more typical Balinese afternoon tea (tea and fried plantains, very good, by the way), but would visit again, and would recommend to those who enjoy this kind of exposure.

  • The museum has a beautiful garden as the setting for the four galleries of exhibitions of Balinese paintings. The paintings are mainly Balinese traditional art and very interesting and beautiful. I wish there were more explanations in English for some of the art work. The entrance tickets included a drink and cake at the museum cafe but we did not pay attention to read the tickets. I wish we could be made aware of this because after two hours of touring the museum we could use some refreshments. The price was good if we could have the chance to enjoy the drink and cake. Nice introduction to Balinese traditional art.
  • A perfect place to know about Balinese' history of art especially painting and carving. It's a huge place and surrounded by gardens, typical of Balinese garden. I always love the Balinese paintings because it makes my imagination get active. Imagining Bali as in the pictures and I love how the artists see Bali and how they create it into the canvas. All of the paintings there are majestic and masterpiece. I almost spent about 1,5 hours to see all the collections. The ticket price is quite high around Rp85.000,00 for locals as me, but hey, the art is priceless and precious right?
  • Fascinating museum with significant historical value. It could be so much better with more professional curation, display, captions and lighting. Parking lot is spacious, no wheelchair access unfortunately.
  • Interesting just not enough of interest to charge 85k idr for. Only bother if you are really interested in Balinese art.
  • Well worth a visit if you are interested in Balinese and wider Indonesian art, history and culture. There are several buildings to enter and discover permanent and temporary exhibitions. The grounds themselves are exceptionally well maintained.
