This museum was a short walk from our hotel. It had paintings by the former owner. Some of the paintings would benefit from conservation. More information about the house could usefully be added. Worth a visit if passing by on the beach path.

Around a dozen paintings in the artists former residence.That’s it.50,000 rupiah to enter,and as others have said,you wonder where this goes. O.K if you want some culture.

Very interesting till see travelers and artists were visiting Bali from the early 1900's. The paintings are impressive but feel they are lacking in any decent preservation of the artist's work. The house would have been impressive in its day.

We both loved the visit. Easy to find right beside the beach. 50,000 each to enter. Beautiful carved old house and story of an artist and his wife and his works. We relaxed in one of the open spaces at the end. Very peaceful space.

This should be a wonderful place but many of the paintings are in a state of decay. It was good to see but I was saddened by the lack of care being taken. The buildings are beautiful.

Most of these paintings are so faded that you they are almost illegible due to the lack of, or no maintenance of them. It is ridiculous that they are charging people to see them as you cannot call this a museum. Surely within not too...More

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.

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
