  • I'd decided to move from the Ubud market morning, you negotiate the taxi touts and taxi runs almost no. Taxi touts Charter of the not so likely to be told if the Rp 50,000, began to walk. And it AIDS the taxi, again to negotiate the other Barker "near the walk". Even if the map is not you call a taxi at the hotel, and somehow was able to arrive. Cannot take advantage of free shuttle service comanecahotel check out on the day was in a taxi and I thought that Ubud morning nine units Cruiser is almost never was surprised. It is also uber couldn't get hold of at this time. Once you tell you that stayed in the room (ticket office), "or have a free ticket? "With. Reportedly does not have the hotel name and room number and say 'OK, gave me a brochure of Japan. Most people do not, could watch in a quiet slow. Sixty years ago, black and white photographs (donated by a foreign people) is exhibited, is interesting. Balinese percussion performances to the elderly person is Japan singing two songs she sang and played, we saw. In the spacious grounds, garden and building was beautiful. And stay an hour or so, return call returned more hotels free comfort.

  • You thought you had a little look on famous Dutch painters. Here in this museum, you learn two more common. Both born in Netherlands and in Bali famous painters are here represents more than in a fine museum (one of the several in Ubud) view their work that was inspired by this magical island and has contributed to the influence of the traditional art by Western painting techniques and views. Furthermore, many examples of the influence. Even if you come for the Visual Arts, also save the great Hall with the collection beautiful krisses does not have and learn that the Balinese kris very much more than an exotic weapon.

  • Feels like a history of Balinese art. Also photographs of the old Balinese people is very interesting. Agrees Mitt, it's painting was a sight to see. The touch as light and heavy, like dancing. Not stated, work notes, that he died. Among them forever, or simply update a non Bill? In the lobby I saw somewhere in your face is. Photo NECA's a bit coupled for years. Very, and we slowly watch. I would recommend.

  • 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.
  • Beautiful grounds and a very nice, varied collection of Balinese art. Be warned that as of time of posting, Ubers and similar taxi apps are not allowed in Ubud
  • A less visited attraction, but worth a visit if you are looking for a peaceful tranquil place to escape the traffic and people in the Kuta area, while taking in culture and fine art. The Neka Art Museum, gives a diverse display of the arts and leaves those who visit a better understanding of the local people and customs
  • Great collection. Allow yourself at least 3-4 hours to do justice given the slightly high entrance price of IDR 75k.
  • Easily the best museum in Ubud. Gives detailed explanation about the progress Balinese art has taken with Dutch influence and the introduction of foreign paint material and supplies. A must go for art enthusiasts looking to gain knowledge on Balinese culture.
