  • Lovely building and gardens, the art work is quite old and in some instances sexually explicit, so if you maybe offended by that sort of thing, then don’t go? But if not we’ll worth the visit the view...  more »
  • In some of the rooms the light did not work, which is quite annoying when looking at the paintings. I came for the photo collection, which is tiny and not worth the visit. Behind one of the paintings,...  more »
  • Most of Ubud visitors miss out on this beautiful museum. The content in the fine buildings in this delightful garden opens your eyes to Bali's culture, both historically and more topical!

  • 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.
