Very abandoned place, without any type of organization for the visitor where street art is confused with sloppiness. Eventually I would have gone in a less good period but I had difficulty even realizing if the place was open or closed temporarily or definitively

Worth the effort to find this attraction. Amazing collection of local art. A true hands on collection of recycled art and original thinking. Classes for locals, gallery and an on-going exploration of creative thinking. They need our support. As my guide said "Art is the sunrise in the dark." Don't miss it. A true highlight of Dili.

Based on positive reviews and a lifelong interest in art we made a priority of visiting this arts center. The artwork we saw was unique, heartfelt and highly worth the visit. This is a combined exhibit gallery, a classroom and a studio for striving professionals and young students. This facility should remain high on the list of places to see in Dili. Since it is just 1 mile from the airport, on the main road toward Dili, you will certainly pass Arte Moris when you go to or from Timor Leste.
- Our experience on a Monday in May was somewhat unexpected. Our cab pulled up to an empty parking lot, and the large outdoor sign visible in your 2016 TA pictures was gone. The main building appeared closed and abandoned. The overgrown yard with a few abstract sculptures did not invite first-time visitors. Having arrived and dismissed our cab, our in-country host led the way to buildings in the back, which were unlit and unoccupied, the door hanging open, but with no signs or indication we were in the right place. Fortunately, we took the next step to enter, and viewed more original paintings and wood sculptures. On leaving, we met a friendly artist at work. Photos posted from our visit give the full picture, artistic (impressive) and architectural (crumbling).

The best place in Dili, hands down. Some beautiful stories told through the art, and the group who live and work there are a great community.
