    Worth the price - see the maestro's collection. No camera's are allowed one you enter the museum. Worth to visit for about an hour.

    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.

    Well worth the visit. A beautiful museum dedicated to the wood carving master works of Tilem and his father Njana. The museum is in the heart of Mas, a village dedicated to wood carving and presents selected pieces of its two great historical master carvers Ida Bagus Njana and Ida Bagus Tilem. There is also Balinese antiques, paintings and masks on display.

    Njana and Tilem, changed the face of Balinese carving. Njana took simple carving lines to a new level and Tilem introduced works using naturally distorted driftwood to express emotion and abstract thought form.

    The museum itself has an architectural style reminiscent of the bygone era of Majapahit kingdom.

    The second section of the museum is a private collection of the family. A small museum shop is downstairs and if you have time, stay and have lunch. The cafe looks closed, but it is not closed. This museum has not had its official Grand Opening, just a soft opening at this stage. The grounds are huge and there is plenty to do here - so plan a 2 hour stay or more.
