Nice few hours

Wandered around the museum as it was right next door to our hotel. Cute little set up with many nice pieces along the way. Good activity for a chilled out stroll after lunch.

A nice setting, but we were the only people there. The cafe was closed, and there were no postcards or souvenirs.... just expensive heavy books.

We had a layover in Bali so used our couple of hours to see this art museum and have lunch elsewhere. Traffic is fairly bad here so we knew we couldn't stray too far from the airport. I was unaware of the Dutch influential artists and I feel like we got to see what the local people looked like 1890-1930... More

Now I am NOT an artist, or even into painting. I am more a motors and doing stuff person. I simply don't "get" art and why people pay so much for a picture. Why build a hospital and do some good with $100 million? But I digress. We went to the Pasifica Museum as we were told it was worth... More

This place is worth a visit. Take a bike and when you go around Nusa Dua stop by. It is a lovely place with so many beautiful paintings.

If you are staying down in Nusa Dua I would recommend you visit for an interesting collection of local art and artifacts. It is a great way to kill an hour or so, especially if it is raining. You are also fairly likely to have the place to yourselves

We spent over two hours at this museum. Very nice place. The selection is very good and presentation well done. It is a must see and well worth the effort. Set aside at least 2-3 hours so you can see everything in a relaxed way.

If you want a bit of a cultural experience of Bali where the exclusive resorts nearby seem to have less of, visit this place for an educational and charming experience.

This is not the largest art museum, but the displays are well spaced with plenty of room for each of the paintings. I had expected more Indonesian artwork (especially Gunnarse, which were there last time we visited) but the displays of European and Asian artists' works were most pleasant. The room reserved for Indonesian artifacts is very interesting. What we... More

It was a museum, not an art gallery, and an expensive one at that! I paid IDR70,000 for the ticket and wished I could have a refund at the end of the visit. It was no wonder that I was the only tourist there. The management needs to seriously consider 1) reducing the admission rate and 2) adding more to... More
