  • A very enjoyable visit with few other visitors. We enjoyed the space and freedom to wander. Visited 20 years ago and although Ubud has expanded thankfully the museum is just as it was.  more »
  • The Museum's great historical collection many objects, the collection is pretty much, so all learning culture. The collection is complete, in addition there are also paintings of keris.

  • We have been to the Neka museum a number of times. Always nice to visit. A good collection. It is however a little tired, not brilliantly maintained in such an open structure  more »

  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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.
