If you are at all interested in the arts and culture of Indonesia, or have seen any of the dance performances in Java or Bali, and want to know more, this is a must do. The Museum is set in a park-like setting, with ample parking and 4 huge antique Joglo houses. There are wonderful displays of Balinese, Javanese, Papuan, Dayak, Batak masks, as well as masks from around the world, including Africa. There is also a fine display of Wayang Golek (rod puppets) and Wayang Kulit (shadow puppets). There is no fee to enter, but you can make a donation when you sign the guest book. This is easily one of the more unique attractions in the Ubud area, but sadly it's not well publicized. However, it's well kept, clean, and there is a nice docent who can show you around. This museum is owned by the same person who owns the wonderful restaurant Pulau Kelapa in Sanggingan, Ubud.
