  • 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
  • great place to take a break from the busy ubud and see some Indonesian Art
  • A very impressive museum of modern Balinese art featuring various artistic styles.
