  • A beautiful collection of traditional art spanning over multiple eras of Balinese history. 150000 rupiah to enter, which seems steep but is well worth it. The pre war art was my personal favourite, but the modern collection is definitely worth a look as it touches on western influence within Bali.
  • Love this museum of Balinese art set amongst gardens, ponds and moss covered stone carvings. Some artifacts include little stories explaining the legends which I really enjoyed reading. A peaceful way to spend couple of hours in Ubud. Ticket includes refreshments in the cafe.
