  • Went 500 meters to the West from the Ubud Palace. Ticket is a voucher for drinks. Hotel is spacious and has permanent exhibition and temporary exhibitions. Exhibition at the contemporary art center paintings, photographs and video, is a contemporary. You can see the work in the exhibition, painted in various techniques, such as the kamasan, Batuan and Ubud, including acrylic and wood carving. You can feel the connection between Bali and faith depicted old Bali landscape and village life.

  • 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?
  • 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.
  • Great for the cultural art peeps :) Local live instrumental makes it beautiful to visit. If u have time for sunset, stunning photos for memory!
  • If you have time and are into art it's definitely worth seeing but otherwise don't feel sorry if you had to skip it.
