  • In my opinion, this Blanco is a very overrated character - all his work, which is presented in the museum, these are portraits of naked Balinese in different piquant oates. Yes, they (Balinese) are certainly beautiful,... first three or four works, then all the same. The collection is meager, the artist does not feel any special handwriting. As below already written in the reviews - a kind of Dali on minimals. The only thing that can be worth the attention is the courtyard in front of the museum with tropical birds, but it certainly is not worth 100K rupees. In general, I do not recommend this museum - wasted time and money. It is better to go to the Museum of Neka, where many times more artists and styles are presented and the entrance ticket is cheaper (and if you really want to look at the naked Balieks, then a few works of Blanco and there is presented - you will have enough). / In my opinion, this Blanco is an extre...

  • A nice clean area to walk around and see paintings of a woman. Some paintings are nude paints so may not be appropriate for kids depending on Indonesian culture but overall nice painting though I may not be an art master, I still able to say that. The atmosphere is great, and it has place to take pictures with birds too
  • Interesting museum consisting of a downstairs room, and upstairs room, two balconies and around 3 other smaller rooms containing various paintings of Blanco's. Only a small amount of them have artists notes. The building alone is worth the 100k entry fee. No photos allowed inside the building and you will be escorted around to view the paintings. Upon exiting you have an opportunity to take photos with some beautiful birds, they are all very friendly and seem to be well loved, I witnessed several staff members sweet talking and kissing them and the birds we responsive to our sweet talking too. They are not caged nor tied down.
