SPECTACULAR MUSEUM OF TTHE DALI OF BALI.......
Dec 2019
Wonderfully flamboyant & colourful museum featuring the numerous mediums of Antonio Blanco, an artist who immersed himself & spent the bulk of his life on 'The Island of the Gods'
Set amongst incredible gardens, with his large exotic birds meandering around, an experience not to be missed when visiting Ubud.

Beautiful gardens and interesting house
Aug 2019
The gardens were absolutely beautiful and the real selling point of the museum, containing tropical birds and stunning flowers. The building is a really interesting shape and an insight into the theatrics of Antonio, he was frequently compared to Dali and visiting this museum it's clear to see why those comparisons might have been made. The art itself mostly consisted of breasts, lots and lots of breasts, Antonio believed that Indonesian women had the best breasts in the world and boy did he go to the effort of trying to prove it.

We were lucky enough to have a partially engaged tour. The guide revealed unusual things that we would have otherwise missed. Amazing out of the ordinary museum. Don’t miss picture with the birds!

Elegant, Mystical and Awe Inspiring Art Museum
Mar 2020
I can only say that I would have loved to meet Don Antonio Blanco in person...an exceptional artist with creativity to spare. His paintings express his love an reverance for the female form for Balinese culture with a healthy dose of 'tongue-in-cheek' humor woven into his many paintings. The frames of each painting are part of Blanco's explosive creativity; filled with detail, hand crafted and designed to highlight the form and intent of each piece. The building itself with painted floors, walls, stairs and golden staturary adornig exterior balconies are the perfect venue for his work. Walking through his studio as you prepare to exit is a special gift.

Tragic Waste of Money
Feb 2020
This so called "museum" is nothing more then a homage to the ego of a vainglorious man daring to compare himself to Salvador Dali. The most expensive museum 100,00 Idr. There is nothing but his own art and photo ops with the stars. The building which is called the museum would even challenge Liberace's taste. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY.

Quirky but of limited interest.
Jan 2020
I had high expectations, having been to other one-off places in the region (eg Manila, Saigon) that were genuinely exciting. Well, this is not really all that much. Blanco was a competent artist, and a quirky, egocentric fellow, clearly much loved by his family, and happily wealthy. But as good as all that is -- and who would begrudge any of it? -- being a wealthy egoist, loved by the family, is not actually adequate ground to open a public gallery.

A little sad
Jan 2020 • Couples
I loved the statue and the architecture, but found everything else to be a little sad. The birds are stressed out and the paintings hardly go beyond the theme of nude women with big breasts and spread legs. Undoubtedly great for some, but it definitely didn’t float my boat. Whatever you might think of Dali - there really is no comparison. I much preferred the artwork and grounds at the Museum Puri Lukisan.

A good place to visit if you've exhausted things to do
Sep 2019
The entry fee is comparatively high (100,000rp) but the grounds are very well maintained. There are several rooms full of quirky art work to view and you can get up close. They also have a bird sanctuary onsite, which isn't my cup of tea (a noisy group of tourists arrived as I was leaving and the birds were visibly distressed at their noise). Easy to reach on foot, about 15 minutes from The Lotus cafe. Just ok.
