Under visited place - great photo opportunities in gardens. Collection a great introduction to Balinese history & culture. Helps to make sense of what you see on the rest of the island. There is a guidebook in English available at the ticket counter. Most tourist guides there are not much use. Vendors of fans, statuettes etc a bit of a... More

A few interesting exhibits which the guide explained well, even though I didn't ask for a guide he just adopted me. The architecture of the buildings was more interesting and it was next door to the temple, a large park and a memorial. It was a nice way to while away an hour. Not happy with the hard sell by...

- Cheap entrance fee - Friendly "guide" showed us around the entrance and took some photos for us, then asked for $20 for a personal tour around the grounds... Erm... no thanks. I think I can see myself around. I gave him $3 for taking the photos and told him to sling his hook..! This point emphasizes that the museum... More

This is a very small museum complex with limited exhibits of any historical or artistic importance. After visiting a number of museums in Ubud I was rather disappointed by the one in Denpasar. There was no good cafe to eat, toilet facilities were very basic and I kept being badgered by people wanting to sell things.

Bali Museum is localized in the hearth of the Bali capital (Denpasar). This places is showing you the early Balinese culture and manual agricultural pragmenst are found here. Artifacts also found here from thousands years and modern human life systems.

Small museum offering a limited selection of preserved artifacts. No English text explanations. Nice place if it is combined with other attractions.

The museum was great to look at changes over time as well as identity. There is not a lot of English, so it is best to know the purpose and focus areas beforehand. There was a group doing a scavenger hunt style activity which I would do the next time. It is large enough for a group of 50 students... More

The museum contains primarily historical artefacts from tribes, and some royal and cultural artefacts. It's not a large museum by any means, but rather than one large building, there are approximately 6 buildings which you enter and exit through the grounds. It costs approximately 20,000 IDR for entrance and I personally don't think it's necessary for an English speaking guide... More

Situated in a location that is easily reached in downtown Denpasar. Actually, this museum would be a center to seek information about the culture of Bali. Unfortunately I am disturbed by the activities of some groups of people who are doing the shooting event so access into some of the buildings become blocked. There are less directions on buildings.

Had this place been in Ubud or Kuta it would've been swamped. The ticket was cheap and as always in Bali there was someone trying to be a guide and get money out of you. My friend and I just walked away and visited the museum ourselves. I learned a lot about Balinese culture here without a guide and had... More
