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.

  • The traditional Balinese paintings get repetitive after a while, especially when there is very little information available about them, sometimes not even names are displayed. The collection of highly expressive wooden sculptures, though few, are exquisite and worth a visit. The ambience is nice but the price is very steep at 80k IDR pax.
  • A fascinating gallery, mainly of very good quality religious Balinese art. Pricey at 80kR, but well worthwhile for the quality of the pieces. Price includes a drink at the museum cafĂ©.
  • Nice exhibition showcasing eclectic balinese modernist art
  • A very impressive museum of modern Balinese art featuring various artistic styles.
  • Privided alot of painting from eras. Good for people who like art
