    A Must Do for art lovers. Comfortable museum with well laid out and captioned examples of all schools of Balinese art. Also some great photos and krisses.

    As we were staying at Murni's Houses & Spa it was only a 3 minute walk. Rather historical museum with 3 or 4 pavilions of representative paintings and some wood carvings. All set in a nice garden.

    An interesting gallery space with an original studio used by the artists. Lovely grounds with exotic birds. The compound also has a plant based restaurant with lovely views across Ubud.
    The restaurant is more expensive than most other cafes and restaurants I ate in while in Ubud.

    A vast selection of original artwork (oil paintings) at reasonable prices. There is a wide selection of very large to small pieces. Most of the works are traditional although modern works are in the adjacent building. I believe that the prices are negotiable (told so by a staff member). Although I did not purchase anything this will be my go to place in the future.

    Beautiful shop with many interesting items. The owner and his son were very informative and were a pleasure to do business with. Loved that buying there also supports local craftsmen.

    I highly recommend this studio for ceramic classes. The owner is wonderful and so are her teachers. I learned more in two lessons than my 16 weeks in NYC! It is an amazingly beautiful open studio surrounded in natural beauty.

    I am a painter but I brought my 75 yr old dad, 65yr old mom and sister to the class with zero experience and they LOVED it. Gusti was an amazing teacher. He’s very patient and truly believes in the value of art - we took forever to finish our paintings but he never rushed us. It was the perfect activity to do where you can be together but separate at the same time. Would go back again and do one of his other classes- small paintings or wood carving.

    Astounding, amazing artwork! Blown away by the talent, set up and friendliness. Our taxi driver had stopped here on the way to Ubud centre as I was desperate to see artwork in Bali and it did not disappoint! The sheer talent, time and thought gone into these pieces of work left me speechless - I had never seen hand paintings like these in my life. I had chosen an outstandingly intricate and impeccable piece of traditional Keliki artwork. The front of house/owner was so genuine, talented and welcoming, the piece of artwork I chose happened to be painted by his own very teacher. He took the time to show me around the gallery and explain the story and meaning behind mine and various other paintings. In my opinion the value they set are very reasonable and worth every penny however I did negotiate on the price. I love how they inspire and teach the younger generations to carry on the tradition. If I had any artistic talent in me I would have definitely loved to attend a class. A must go if you're into art! 10/10

    First thing I notice is how big the museum building from outside. And that makes me amaze even more is how bigger it actually is! You’ll see full of details dragon statue on the stairs to main entrance, then you’ll find ticket counter, then the magic begins. The museum has huge variation of arts on display. It has 3 storeys on the main building, and few other smaller bungalows around it. Yes, they’re all full of paintings and arts. It’s really nice to wonder around as I found a lot of interesting paintings. You can take photos at most of the museum’s part.

    Excellent and varied collection of vintage art. Donna and Made were nice folks to deal with; we bought 2 items we are very happy to have. Highly recommended for those seeking high quality vintage Balinese art at reasonable prices.

    This is an amazing mask gallery! The designs are vibrant and intricate, it's clear they are a very skilled family. Unfortunately you're not allowed to take photos to stop others stealing their designs. The two ladies that greeted me were very friendly and answered all of my questions. It's free to visit and they would not even take a donation. Really recommend visiting this place

    One of the best photo book I ever read.
    What an incredible immersive sight of Bali, through amazing landscapes and nature, but most important: people! Thanks to this young photographer Damien, I travelled to Bali from home and met such interesting and beautiful people through his book.
    Can't wait for his next one!

    If I could give more than 5 stars I would do so. Following an email request Soemantri and the team helped me to track down the artist of a painting that we had seen during a visit to Ubud 3.5 years ago. Not only did they find the artist, but much to my surprise and delight the actual painting was currently available. They then facilitated a negotiation between the artist and I. Once a price was agreed, Titian also facilitated my payment (from the UK) and organised the shipping. I have now received my painting and I could not be happier.
    I have been blown away by the courtesy, attentiveness and integrity shown by Soemantri and the Titian team throughout the process. I wholeheartedly recommend this gallery.

    Well worth the visit. A beautiful museum dedicated to the wood carving master works of Tilem and his father Njana. The museum is in the heart of Mas, a village dedicated to wood carving and presents selected pieces of its two great historical master carvers Ida Bagus Njana and Ida Bagus Tilem. There is also Balinese antiques, paintings and masks on display.

    Njana and Tilem, changed the face of Balinese carving. Njana took simple carving lines to a new level and Tilem introduced works using naturally distorted driftwood to express emotion and abstract thought form.

    The museum itself has an architectural style reminiscent of the bygone era of Majapahit kingdom.

    The second section of the museum is a private collection of the family. A small museum shop is downstairs and if you have time, stay and have lunch. The cafe looks closed, but it is not closed. This museum has not had its official Grand Opening, just a soft opening at this stage. The grounds are huge and there is plenty to do here - so plan a 2 hour stay or more.
