What travellers are saying
- I was really looking forward to visiting this museum and viewing the Balinese paintings and wood carvings, reputed to be the largest and finest collection in Bali. The gardens and building are impressive, architecture very similar to nearby temples. I didn't manage to see all the displays, various classes, a hot day, high humidity and the inevitable Balinese penchant for steps limited my viewing. Fascinating museum and a must visit if in Ubud.Written 28 August 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Decided to walk from our hotel to the museum, easy going as all downhill until i reached the entry and then a struggle up the steep driveway to the entrance. Well worth the effort to view the buildings, the delightful gardens and water features and the many artworks throughout the various galleries. It is the former home of Don Antonio Blanco and the tradition of Blanco art is continued by his only son, Mario. The very useful and informative site map has a comprehensive summary of the artist, the compound and his works.

- 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.Written 21 December 2018This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- I stayed in Tanah Merah resort and I had the chance to see this museum with exhibits from Indonesia ,China ,and of course from Bali island .This museum is the result of the efforts of the owner and collector Mr Peter Bloch ,the most interested and inspirational man i have ever met .Free entrance of course for the guests of the hotelWritten 15 October 2018
- The museum is very organized and worth the admission fee which comes with a booklet and a refreshment. You can roam each themed building and interact with their local artists onsite. The place is clean and well maintained. The staff are very hospitable. I like their Apple OC dessert paired with iced latte.Written 2 November 2023
