Setia Darma House Of Mask And Puppets - Review
The Sukawati District is famous for its extensive population of sculptors, woodcrafters and other artists. That is why it is the best place to host this cultural museum. Five traditional Balinese Pavilions are spread over 1.4 hectares. Inside them, thematically displayed, is one of the world's richest collections of masks and puppets. Represented here are not only Indonesian cultural artifacts, but also those from Africa, China, Latin America, and Europe - over 5000 items in all. Among the type of artifacts you find you are the Indonesian leather shadow puppet, the Japanese bunraku dolls, 16th century European marionettes, figurines from Indian mythology, and one house dedicated to Balinese puppets and masks alone. All of these are described in detail at the museum and their significance is explained.

Setia Darma House Of Mask And Puppets, Bali Reviews
Theatre,dance and music are the heart of every culture.Here at the mask and puppet museum you can learn and enjoy the great craftsmanship of master puppeteers and wood carvers.The exhibit takes you on a journey from the Bali, Java to the world.Amazing! A luscious garden with a cafe,and shop away from the hassle. A very friendly, expert and knowledgeable guide with very good English will teach you about the history, the techniques and the epic stories. A must do experience.
This place is amazing because it’s in the middle of nowhere and far away from tourists. I was its only visitor today and I even got to take a nap overlooking the rice terraces. The masks are amazing. I’m so glad it’s so quiet and peaceful there. Clean grounds, toilets/facilities to use. I did not eat at the cafe, but totally worth visiting!
Nice museum in the middle of nowhere. We where completely alone on our journey exploring some mask related knowledge. It's a good museum if your into masks and want to upgrade your mask based conversations. Go there and give it a try.
Excellent location to see traditional puppets, mask etc. This museum ie well kept and curated. See to believe. Do ask for someone to guide to better appreciate. The best thing is not that entry is free but the vast collection displayed in a few buildings. All are authentic not fabricated. Although some items are not carded, most are. After the visit, do have a drink at the cafe. The breeze is refreshing. Highly recommended location.
Extraordinary collection of Indonesian masks and puppets on display inside original Javanese wood huts. The peaceful garden and cafe are a true relief after two days around Ubud's crowded streets. Hidden oasis, highly recommended!
