  • The Neka Art Museum lies right off a busy street, but once we entered it felt like we were transported to a serene place. Surprisingly, there were hardly any visitors on the afternoon in which we visi...  more »
  • Located in a beautiful garden, these are several pavilions that bring together ancient and modern paintings. This museum helps to better realize the life of all the days of the Balinese because most of the paintings reflects everyday life: work in the rice paddies, processions, cremations... A must see!

  • We went there 5 years ago and we found this great Museum, we went back today with some friends who did not know el here what a disappointment the visit is two times faster because fewer tables to see. We also found that the works that we had appreciated were no longer there. As for the temporary exhibition pavilion there was no table! The visit ends with a shop that sells items that we find in the market and of course much more expensive. Then we went to the toilet which was very very dirty... We recommend this museum.

  • Nice Museum to see. Normally not crowded. Entry fee is 100k IDR which includes entry only. If you want to see dance or culture programs have to buy seperate tickets. Most of their shows listed have been discontinued.
  • Nice museum depicting Balinese artwork from different villages and cultures, showing their various rituals, lifestyles, traditions and customs. Clean and well maintained.
  • Several exhibitions of various subjects concerning Balinese painting over the last century or so. Beautiful works, scattered over a lovely campus-like surrounding. Unfortunately the museumshop did not feature many of the more interesting works.
  • A good mix of contemporary art from different eras. Not as big of a collection as one might think but great place to learn the local histry and culture. Great collection o Ari Smit, the Dutch born Balinese artist - interesting story as well as great art of his was on display.
  • I am not the greatest fan of Balinese art but this museum delivers a real historical journey through the different styles and times. The collection of Arie Smit has some real exceptional pieces. The modern art has outstanding pieces in it which creates a wonderful balance to the 'old masters'. Maybe the founder of the museum had a few too many photos and paintings made of himself but that does not take away from the great collection he has put together.
