In the center of Balinese culture, Ubud, the Neka Art Museum is one of three major art galleries in the city. Founded by Suteja Neka, the field pavilion is home to Balinese and Indonesian art treasures, as well as a collection of traditional wavy weapon daggers known as “kris.” Bali Painting Hall is a good place to explore the work of local artists.
The entrance ticket to the Neka Art Museum is affordable and there is rarely a line. The tour usually focuses on the evolution of Balinese art, the Lempad Pavilion is home to a collection of world-class works by I Gusti Nyoman Lempad. The 20th century masters of Indonesian painting such as Affandi and Abdul Aziz also deserve to be seen, such as the pavilion dedicated to Dutch-Indonesian artists Arie Smit. The art shop in this place offers Indonesian art objects, the signboards are generally clear and Campuhan is easily accessible from the center of Ubud.
Balinese art enthusiasts will visit the Neka museum, Puri Lukisan, and ARMA, three large Ubud art galleries. There are toilets and cafes on site, as well as a large garden. This museum is more suitable for adults or older families than those who have small children.
The Neka Art Museum is open seven days a week throughout the year with the exception of national holidays. To visit different pavilions, visitors must leave the room, so maybe visitors should bring an umbrella during the rainy season. This museum is rarely crowded, so it can be visited at will.
