Local art
Apr 2020
Beautiful local arts are presented here. Place is not very big itself but was interesting to visit, once we stay in Ubud we really like to feel the atmosphere of the area. And museum Puri Lukisan is one of the places we really enjoyed.

The king of Ubud, Mahabharata & Walter Spies.
Sep 2019
Museum Puri Lukisan is a tranquil place of serenity and home to some great artworks. You can go around the museum and enjoy the majestic Balinese architecture with its cultivated garden, beautiful ponds and big halls filled with Hindu's sacred artworks. It is one of the oldest art museums in Bali, founded and build by Tjokorda Gde Agung Sukawati (the king of Ubud), his brother, Walter Spies and Rudolf Bonnet. The story of Ramayana and Mahabharata are the main subject for most of the paintings and sculptures. The battle of good versus evil, the romance between the mortals and immortal are all depicted in various techniques by different artists. There are also artworks by Walter Spies of Balinese landscape. All are available for intercultural contemplation for both the physical and spiritual.

The Puri Lukisan is famous for its showcasing of class Balinese artwork. There are also wonderful gardens, sculptures and, historical story boards. As a bit of a camera buff myself, I really enjoyed the photographic exhibits.

Traditional Indonesian Art
Mar 2020
This museum is only just up the road from the Ubud palace. There is a sign at the front so you can't miss it. There is an entrance fee which you pay to on the right before you head up the stairs. Up the top of the stairs there is a beautiful garden. Then each building has a different art exhibition inside. Was great to see some traditional Indonesian art inside. There is no photography allowed inside these buildings. There also appeared to be a cafe up the top too.

Apparently you can get a free glass of juice afterwards, but I didn't know where to get one from.

Something different

Not a let down. The paintings/stories take time to absorb and if interested further research is a plus. No guide is with you so be prepared to jot notes and be amazed!

lovely gardens and lunch
Nov 2019
We've been to this little oasis in hectic Ubud many times. It is a good introduction to traditional Balinese art. A large delicious buffet lunch is included wth your 115 rupiah ticket.

Rude service
Nov 2019 • Family
Had a bad experience in this place. Staffs was rude towards us ( maybe because because we don’t look rich enough).
I am Indonesian living in Sydney, travelling with my parents for their first holiday( yes, we are from small town in Borneo).

We, 4 of us, have the buffet lunch in the restaurant, which included in the entry tickets.

the staffs didn’t offer us drinks, didn’t show us any menu, and didn’t tell us anything about the service ( neglected by them while they were just chatting to each other).

So i asked for menu, and ordered some drinks. A while later, we hadn’t finished our meal the staff gave us the bill to pay.

Not happy about the service, i asked to talk to their manager, and the manager sent a representative (someone else) to apologise.

So disappointed, ruining my beautiful day in Bali.

The art gallery itself is ok, few interesting local painting, but with poor lighting ( dim, and warm toned light) hard to see the original colour of the painting and make it difficult to enjoy.

Has 4 different building, only one has AC, and one was closed when i was there.

Pengalaman pahit kujungan ke Museum Puri Lukisan @museumpurilukisan .
Hari terakhir di Ubud, Bali. 21/11/2019.
Saya dan keluarga mengunjungi Museum ini, tiket nya sekitaran 140rb-150rb ( kurang ingat tepatnya berapa) per orang dan sudah termasuk makan siang buffet.
Pas kami masuk ke restaurant nya, disambut dengan bahasa inggris dan ramah. Lalu saya menjawab mengunakan bahasa Indonesia.
Pada saat itu lah aku merasakan suasana nya berubah. Kami diarah kan ke meja makan lalu dibiarkan bergitu saja, tidak ditawarin minum, tidak dikasih menu, dan tidak diarahkan.
Saya pun berinisiatif untuk minta menu minuman, dan di kasih begitu saja lalu pergi meninggalkan kami ( padahal restoran juga sepi dan mereka ngobrol-ngobrol saja), saya panggil staff nya lalu order minuman. Beberapa saat kemudian, kami masih belum selesai makan, di sodorin bill, SO RUDE! 😡🤬. Pada saat itu jam 1pm an, kami baru sekitar 30 menitan disana dan restaurant nya tutup jam 3pm. Aku samperin karyawan nya dan mau meminta penjelasan perlakuan mereka terhadap kami. Aku request untuk complaint ke manager mereka, tp dikirim wakil (orang lain, bukan manager nya) dan hanya permintaan maaf tanpa penjelasan yang memadai.
Mungkin kami dari kampung, dan tidak berpakaian mewah, tapi kami bayar dengan harga yang sama dengan tamu lainnya, kami behaved and good manner people. Not fair been treated rudely. My holiday starts nicely but ended badly.

Sanctuary with Art
Nov 2019
It is a lovely respite to enter the grounds of this museum and to wander in the peace of the manicured gardens . I enjoyed the contemporary art exhibition enormously and the historical aspect of the establishment of the museum was interesting and both described and portrayed well. The art works themselves did seem to have few variations over the four pavilions and that meant that I did skim, rushing toward my lunch rather than taking time to appreciate. I think that was due in no large part to my own cultural cluelessness. The restaurant is in a lovely spot and the opportunity to choose from a perfectly adequate buffet lunch of indonesian dishes and linger with a glass of wine was a welcome one.
