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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 collection of masks and puppets. The museum itself was very nice and well maintained.

  • A place to get more knowledge about carving arts, local architectures, and another local cultures. Sometimes they run some cultural events. They also have cafeteria with a good coffee
