“Worth an hour.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2013

The museum is divided into several pavilions with an assortment of exhibits. The grounds are tranquil with very few tourists. The information on the exhibits is scanty as in many Balinese museums. There are refreshments available to purchase. It can be difficult to get a taxi from nearby.

“Interesting but not much to see and in bad condition”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2013

The Bali Museum is housed in a Hindu temple with unique and beautiful architecture throughout. There are three or four rooms in different buildings containing artifacts from Bali, including stone and wood carvings, textiles, paintings, masks, and weapons.

Unfortunately most of the artifacts are exhibited in display cases that are not climate controlled and some of the artifacts show signs of wear and damage from improper handling and display. Many display cases were also dusty and dirty. It was really sad to see these treasures from Bali being so poorly cared for. It won't be long before everything at the Bali Museum is ruined if they don't learn to better take care of things. Modern conservation and preservation techniques are severely lacking at the Bali Museum.

If you like museums it is worth stopping at the Bali Museum for a quick look around. You won't need to stay very long. You can easily see the whole museum in 30 minutes or an hour if you want to take your time. Admission is cheap, only 10,000 rupiah or about USD $1.

One last thing, if you need to use a toilet I'd recommend going before visiting the Bali Museum. The toilets at the museum are disgusting and smelly.

“See how Balinese Royal Golden age”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2012

Here you can see how balinese royal golden ages like their gold art, jewelry, fabric and interior. It's also next to the main temple where in front of the museum is a large field where you can find some traditional food.
