Agung Rai Museum of Art
The Agung Rai Museum of Art has been open since 1996 and houses an impressive collection of over 200 Balinese, Indonesian and foreign artworks in two buildings. Ranging from traditional pieces painted on tree bark to modern day works, the museum will interest most art lovers.
The museum itself is set in a beautiful, truly peaceful location, and the layout of the exhibits, with their soothing colours, exquisite detail and inspiring artistry make for a relaxing, engaging visit.
The main goals of the ARMA are to preserve artworks, develop and preserve the arts of music, dance, sculpture and painting, and to pass these skills on to the local community. Bali's arts are rich and complex, with roots in history - ARMA is doing its part to protect it.
Temporary exhibitions are also shown at the museum.
Although ARMA isn't in the absolute top attractions of Bali, it is well worth a visit if you are looking to pass a relaxing and cultural afternoon.
Admission: 60,000 rupiah, including a drink in the café.
Allow 1.5 to 2 hours to take everything in.
