“Art does not make up for the blatant misuse of animals in confined spaces”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

Poor beautiful birds being mistreated, small cages, no perches, drinking water filthy and expected to perform at the drop of a hat. The art is well done, however smutty in its content which also shows the advantage taken by this eccentric artist in Bali so it doesn't surprise me that birds are of the lesser... Go to Neka instead, at least here it is more about the Bali culture and the Art and there is no cruelty to animals evident... My advice, boycott Blanco, it just ain't worth it...

“Phenomenal museum experience, not to be missed!”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

Very unusual experience for Bali. Walk around the grounds outside, for a unique bird collection, visit the museum and head to the roof for sweet views of the city, and have a lovely snack at the restaurant afterwards.
Loved the art!

“Lots of lady bits”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

I'm not at all artistically inclined, but there were far too many nude paintings for my taste. The grounds themselves were beautiful though. If you are into art it is definitely worth a look.
