Pay a visit to Museum Puri Lukisan, the oldest art museum in Bali. Specializing in modern Balinese paintings and wood carvings, the collection here provides a fine introduction to the island's artistic heritage and social history. With many powerful pieces focusing on the War of Independence, the gallery offers a running commentary on political and cultural flashpoints and their fallout, as well as the development of aesthetic considerations. See the stylistic conversations between artists of different schools played out in the well-arranged exhibits, and admire the contrasts and similarities that come with different eras, mindsets, and personalities.

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.
