Pocket Guide: Denpasar Bali Museum Hotels

Visit Bali Museum from Your Kuta Guesthouse

Kuta has only grown into the bustling city you see today over the past five decades. But Bali itself is unimaginably ancient and nowhere tells the story of this fascinating island better than the Bali Museum in Denpasar. Though there are places to stay in Denpasar itself, most tourists tend to stay nearer the coast in Kuta itself, where the accommodation options are more plentiful and include everything from boutique bed and breakfasts and affordable aparthotels to all-inclusive high-end resorts. This intriguing museum is less than half and hour’s taxi ride from Kuta Beach.

Enjoy a New and Richer Appreciation of Local Culture

Every aspect of Balinese culture is touched upon at the Bali Museum, which even has traditional architecture. Visitors are naturally involved with exhibits, and the experience is enhanced by local musicians playing classical instruments. In the main gallery, you’ll find prehistoric relics and archaeological finds unearthed in Bali over the past two centuries. But it is the charming collection of artefacts upstairs which truly enthrals. With delights from tiny bamboo cages used to transport fighting crickets to ancient domestic items, it creates a poignant and enchanting picture of Bali.

Spend Time in the Past and Understand the Present

The most architecturally interesting museum building is an almost exact replica of the Karangasem Pavilion in Amlapura. This is the centrepiece of the museum and where you can see a beautiful array of ceremonial and religious exhibits ranging from exquisite altar ornaments to delicate robes. If you’ve already visited the local markets and admired modern Balinese textiles, you will be fascinated by the originals at the Bali Museum. The loveliest examples are shot through with threads of pure gold and the richness and variety of colours is dazzling.

Leave time to explore the Tabanan Palace building, with Bali’s most extensive collection of historic dance costumes and masks. From a cultural point of view, they are remarkable, but children adore this section for the sheer horror of ancient witches and demons. This is also one of the few places where you are close enough to fully admire the intricacies of the amazing Barong costumes.
