“To be seen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

This is the perfect place one needs to go when experiencing Bali. It's lovely, informative, good for you, does not feel too educational or too institutional. The outdoor spaces are soothing. It's designed very much in the Bali spirit and makes for a wonderful afternoon or early morning.

“Excellent collection or art in nice surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We cycled up from Ubud town centre - a bit uphill but not too bad! The museum is reputed to have the best examples of Balinese art and didn't disappoint. We saw a wide variety of traditional paintings - many based on the aesthetic style of old puppet shows - through to those of the Ubud School depicting everyday life, and contemporary artists doing more abstract work. The Arie Smit collection was lovely too. Interesting sculpture as well, both traditional and modern. The setting itself was peaceful, set out among a quiet compound of gardens and pavillions. It was good to absorb something really Balinese, away from the tourist-centric Ubud town centre. Definitely worth a visit.

Very well laid out. Nice cool buildings. Good descriptions. Spend 2 or 3 hours there and don't miss the photographs.

“Art Historical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

a good overview of the development of art in Bali, so you leave w/ a historical overview of the development, esp. of painting, on the island. The KRIS collection is amazing, and I didn't think I would care much for just looking at "knives", ceremonial or otherwise, but these are fascinating and beautiful.
