The Neka Art Museum lies right off a busy street, but once we entered it felt like we were transported to a serene place. Surprisingly, there were hardly any visitors on the afternoon in which we visited, even though the town of Ubud was bustling...More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. The pavilions are attractive and spread through some lovely gardens. It was very quiet and peaceful on the morning we went. The art was very interesting - I particularly enjoyed the Balinese art in the first pavilion, especially the Batuan...More

Sensational Keris collection upstairs. We spent several hours here, there is a really interesting mix of painting & sculpture ranging from traditional to contemporary.

I spent several hours wandering the galleries here. There are several pavilions with well curated exhibitions. The gardens are beautiful and so were the ducks. Lovely place.

The museum/art gallery is a great visit in Ubud - we came on our final day looking for something easy to do and expected to spend less than an hour here. We ended up spending a good 2 hours at least taking it all in....More

Well organized museum with clear separation into several halls with distinct themes. Good captions to help you appreciate the art. Worth a visit!!

This museum was very easy to visit due to the small texts beside the paintings. I can really recommend this place if the sun is hot or on a rainy day. Don't miss the fifth hall of contemporary paintings from other ethnic groups in Indonesia....More

This museum/art collection is definitely worth a visit if you are in Ubud for a few days - the paintings in the first villa and the photos from 1939 in one of the other villas are particularly good.

If you are into art, it is well structured and interesting. We enjoyed the stay! Our son (13 years) found it awfully boring.

Set in multiple buildings and floors, huge range of paintings from early Balinese style through to showing the influence of well known European artists. English signs on every piece in English and Japanese. You need to allow several hours to see it properly. No wifi...More

I think it is Rp75,000 per person. If you stay at Villa Sanggingan just down the street which is owned By Pak Neka, you qualify for free entry.

I think you'll find that almost all of Arie Smit's paintings are in Neka Museum. For many of Arie's final years he was tended to by Neka and during the last decade or so of his rich life, Arie lived in Villa Sanggingan... More
