Overview

This small museum at the north end of Sanur Beach evokes a time of innocence and beauty before the introduction of relatively recent laws banning "immodest dress." Even more impressive than the paintings by the Belgian artist of the young Balinese dancer he married and her friends is the small mansion in which the art and artifacts are housed: a lovely example of Balinese architecture decorated with finely carved and gilded wooden shutters.

A painter once fell in love with Bali and his young model, eventually marrying her. Their property has been transformed into this museum--a fitting tribute to local culture and art.

It a small and humble museum, and worth a visit. The buildings are fantastic and the story behind sooo life confirming. Take a break from the sun and go visit.

I'm glad I went as I like art. Adrien-Jean Le Mayeur is obviously one of the great old painters. The Museum houses around 20 of his paintings in two buildings. The light reflecting from outside at some times of the day make the paintings hard...More

at the north end of Sanur just past the Bali Beach Hotel it is a lovely walk as the avenue is wide and tree shaded or you can ride a bike - my husband usually hires one for the month so rides everywhere but I like to walk
