Agung Rai Museum of Art (ARMA)

Immerse yourself in Balinese culture at this interactive center, enjoy a meal, or stay in the resort and relax in the peaceful natural setting.

The Agung Rai Museum of Art (ARMA) is based on the philosophies of its founder, Agung Rai. The museum is more a cultural center, dedicated to the preservation of Balinese art and culture and its connection with the community. Established in 1982, and officially opened in 1996, the museum funds its programs through the income generated from the on-site resort and restaurants. Enjoy workshops, have dinner, stay the night or simply browse the collection.

See examples of Kamasan art, which is a traditional Balinese painting style. Admire pre-World War II paintings and sculptures by Balinese artists and European creatives who lived in Bali. One of them is the notable German painter Walter Spies. There is also a collection of modern art, depicting traditional and abstract scenes. All signs have English translations.

Join a class and learn about the type of Hinduism practised in Bali or about traditional Balinese architecture. Hear traditional Indonesian music and the gamelan, a set of instruments. Watch traditional performances that combine Barong and Keris dance as well as contemporary shows.

Create a painting, take a Balinese cooking class or learn traditional basket weaving. You can even try batik, a textile dyeing technique. If you’d rather work with wood, learn the basic elements of carving and discover how to use the various tools. Children can learn dances or discover the meaning of Hindu offerings by making packages from leaves, bamboo and dough.

Take a seat in the courtyard, restaurant or café and order Indonesian or Italian dishes. The tropical gardens add to the relaxing atmosphere.

The museum also offers upscale accommodation, so if you have the time and money, book one of the luxury rooms or villas with private pool for a few nights.

The Agung Rai Museum of Art is centrally located in Ubud and easily reached on foot from the town center. There is an admission fee for the museum. Find the details of workshops and accommodation on the museum’s website. There is free parking near the café.
