The Bali Shell Museum is located near Carrefour in Kuta. The ground floor is a shop which is free to browse; the actual museum is on the 2 floors above the shop level and it is a 75,000 IDR entry fee. We were escorted to the museum level, but the guy just waited around and didn't provide any information, but... More

We enjoyed the collections exhibited but were not happy that they did not bother to switch on the air conditioning for us as we were the only people in the museum. Is this how you treat people who just paid 75000/person? It was almost too stuffy to enjoy and we got out of the place as soon as we could!

We stumbled onto this museum because we stayed at a hotel near and had a free morning. Our kids, age 5 & 8, really enjoyed it. A guide walked through with us and answered our questions. Part of what was fascinating was that the creator of the museum is an architect - so the actual architecture of each room was... More

I know the museum for quite sometime but never really made an effort to visit. This time we did and it was beyond our expectation. The place looks like a small store from the outside, so you tend not to take it seriously, until you see the collection. It has an amazing collection and it is actually a private collection... More

Went there for an hour or two on a rainy Bali afternoon. Kids liked it but they are a bit too young to really appreciate it. Decent collection of shells and fossils and decent gift shop. Costs 75,000 to get in for adult and 50,00 for child which I think is a bit steep but we are on holiday I... More
