This small museum at the north end of Sanur Beach evokes a time of innocence and beauty before the introduction of relatively recent laws banning "immodest dress." Even more impressive than the paintings by the Belgian artist of the young Balinese...more

We have been coming to this part of Sanur for 10 years and have never visited the museum before, in part because it only opens during the low season and is difficult to find. Certainly for the last four years I have been well aware...More
Although this museum is about an expat living in Bali, the house, his paintings, the photos, all gives you an idea of how life must have been almost a century ago on this unique island.
The state of the house is not in good condition,...More
It’s easy to miss the entrance but anyone will direct you. It’s at the end of the beach walk the stretches for about 4km along Sanur beach. A very reasonable entrance fee gives you access to this small but charming gallery/museum. There are clear explanations...More
Had high expectations for this museum. I was really disappointed by the condition of this old seaside mansion. It's totally run-down, house falling apart, literally, dark rooms no fans, garden is not looked after at all. Such a shame for a historic place like this....More
Sadly have to agree with the majority of previous reviews. Great art and story completely engulfed in neglect and lack of any kind of artistic standards, design or vision.

This museum was a short walk from our hotel.
It had paintings by the former owner. Some of the paintings would benefit from conservation. More information about the house could usefully be added.
Worth a visit if passing by on the beach path.
Very interesting till see travelers and artists were visiting Bali from the early 1900's. The paintings are impressive but feel they are lacking in any decent preservation of the artist's work. The house would have been impressive in its day.
We both loved the visit. Easy to find right beside the beach. 50,000 each to enter.
Beautiful carved old house and story of an artist and his wife and his works.
We relaxed in one of the open spaces at the end. Very peaceful space.

at the north end of Sanur just past the Bali Beach Hotel
it is a lovely walk as the avenue is wide and tree shaded or you can ride a bike - my husband usually hires one for the month so rides everywhere but I like to walk
