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.

  • In a beautiful setting, this museum makes for a delightful visit, close to Ubud. The grounds are vast and beautifully kept. Dotted amongst the beautiful gardens and trees are many magnificent old Javanese teak houses that have been re-built to house the vast collection of masks and puppets. These were all well displayed and maintained, with well-written descriptions. The Balinese masks alone are worth a visit and they are just a small part of the collection which has masks from all over Indonesia and other parts of the world. Admission is free and you will almost certainly want to donate to help the museum continue to display its collection as well as it does.I was truly delighted by our visit.

  • The best museum I’ve been to in Ubud. Beautiful collection of masks, puppets and shadow puppets not only from Bali and Indonesia, but also from all over the world. The setting is gorgeous: a set of old wooden buildings in a nice garden surrounded by rice paddy fields. The museum is free but they accept donations. Highly recommend.

  • Amazing masks & puppets collection. Very well-maintained garden & gallery. Nice space for performing arts indoor & outdoor. I love the outdoor amphitheatre (whether there's any performance or not).
