Best Art Museums in Bali

Here's a list of Best Art Museums in Bali recommended by our experts:

Welcome to the Island of the Gods, culture vultures! A Bali holiday is incomplete without experiencing its fascinating spiritual and cultural attractions. For a truly authentic Balinese experience, make your way to Ubud, the cultural centre of Bali – where visitors tour and explore local flea markets, art museums and ancient temples. Learn all about age-old rituals, traditional recipes, and local art and craft. Discover a treasure trove of brilliant artworks and handicrafts by talented local craftsmen in Bali’s art markets. This is the best of Balinese culture and experiences that you'll want to mark off your bucket list! While backpackers and groups of friends often explore Kuta for its fun party culture, Ubud is where you need to be for a more local flavour. Ubud, a town in central Bali, is far removed from the drunken bikini scene in Kuta. It is famous as an arts and crafts hub, and much of the town and nearby villages seems to consist of artists' workshops and galleries. There are plenty of historical UNESCO sites in the Indonesian archipelago that lure travellers. Most of Bali's museums and galleries are located in Ubud, but Bali is history and culturally rich all around – peppered with many museums and galleries. They show you beautiful paintings, wood carvings, textiles and all kinds of curios to purchase as souvenirs. Blanco, arguably the most famous and successful artist to ever live in Bali, built his magnificent studio, Don Antonio Blanco Museum, on top of a mountain overlooking the Campuan River. This flamboyant building, a unique blend of Balinese architecture imbued with the spirit of his native Spain, houses an interesting collection of works drawn from different periods of his long career. We have rounded up the best art museums in Bali:
