This is a vast collection of art, mostly owned by the Museum owner and his wife. We first visited in 1995, before it was opened to the public, on the occasion of a world bamboo conference, where the opening and closing ceremonies, and the sessions, were held, and were interested to see what it had become. Well, the open rice... More

If you are interested in art especially paintings, this is a must see place in Bali. The display here is great and well arranged. Museum has a café, There is also a rice field at the back of the museum. We enjoyed this visit more than walking.

This was such a beautiful art museum - a tranquil oasis in the middle of busy Ubud. The collection is beautiful and varied and the museum building and gardens are so lovely. Visit the nice cafe for lunch or coffee or watch one of the fantastic dance performances in the evening.

A lot of great art here, and it's also a nice glimpse into both traditional and modern Balinese culture that a casual visitor will never see (e.g., paintings of cremation ceremonies) I only wish the rooms were air conditioned. I was hoping it would be respite from the heat outside, but not so much. Plus, the heat and humidity is... More

We visited the cafe, the shop, and the Indonesian art museum. The museum is really a nice surprise with all the paintings where we can see the evolution of balinese paintings through the years. must visit place in Bali.

Absolutely loved the ARMA! I don't think a trip to Ubud is complete without it. Enjoy a great collection of pieces from artists with very different styles from all over the world in one building and traditional Balinese style painting in the other. All of the traditional pieces have really well written descriptions to give you an understanding of what... More

Nice way to spend a few hours viewing local art and architecture. Don't forget to stop at the onsite Thai restaurant for a great meal.
