This small museum at the north end of Sanur Beach evokes a time of innocence and beauty before the introduction of relatively recent laws banning "immodest dress." Even more impressive than the paintings by the Belgian artist of the young Balinese dancer he married and her friends is the small mansion in which the art and artifacts are housed: a lovely example of Balinese architecture decorated with finely carved and gilded wooden shutters.

It was the story behind the museum that piqued my interest and made me want to visit the place. A Belgian artist in Bali in the mid-50s, a young Balinese dancer who was his muse and wife, the seaside setting for inspiration and lots of...More

We went out of our way to find this museum and were not disappointed. The layout is a bit chaotic, but once we got used to it, we found it easy to find our way. The art is a nice fusion of European impressionist art...More

for those interested in Bali history (especially the intersection of European artists with Balinese), this is a very interesting spot worth a 20 minute visit. It is unfortunate that the signage is minimal, as Le Mayeur played a unique role in Bali. Read before you...More

It pains me to say that this museum has the worst art preservation and presentation. As an art enthusiast, especially impressionist paintings, the way they display the paintings, especially Le Mayeur's early paintings in Europe is so tearjerking. The paints have faded away and losing...More

Near the now big, sprawling Bali Beach Hotel you can find the tiny house where the painter Le Mayear lived and painted in the 1930s with his Balinese dancer and wife - Ni Pollock. The hours are limited and somewhat erratic, but it's worth the...More

This is a small museum located on the beach walk. It has small, but very pretty grounds and there are some interesting paintings and pictures to look at. It was, however, really hot in the rooms and this made me hurry along.
