  • Read reviews before. Many 5 stars and a few less than 3 star. And i give 5 stars. It does not only exhibit mere painting, it is to enjoy art and its also educational. Spend some time to read the information shown next or under the paintings. There even articles or book pages showed to help you understand more. When it tickles you to know more, google it. Afterall, you are allowed to spend your whole day here until they close. It is hot, but windy, still enjoyable. Attached are 2 paintings that i thing will help other to decide to visit or not. The information of the painting is as shown at the following pic. Btw, you are allowed to take pic but do not turn on the flash for it will harm the artwork.
  • Very interesting atmosphere of all arts together. U should visit Pasifika Museum if u passion in fine arts. It was a surprise for me when I saw Russian writer Alexander Pushkin here.
  • Museum Pasifika I stopped by the Museum Pasifika, which I had been interested in for a long time. Each of the 11 exhibition rooms has its own theme, so my imagination will increase even before I enter. The first room is a room of traditional or contemporary art from Indonesia and Bali. There were more works than I expected. After that, I went through the rooms in order to the exhibition rooms of Italian, Dutch, French, and Ind-European artists. I enjoyed traveling back in time between the past and the present. Arie Smit, Rudolf Bonnet, Hofker, Covarrubias, Walter Spies, Theo Meier. The works of painters who have heard their names many times in the museums and art scenes of Bali (their works decorate pages such as guidebooks and art books) are lined up without interruption. In the Vanuatu room, I felt like I could hear the voice of the crowd from each piece of primitive art. The scent of old natural materials and the rising temperature and humidity created a fantastic atmosphere. In Theo Meier's room, I was amazed at his technique, how he handled the materials, and his expressiveness, and was impressed by his talent as an artist. And I realized that Theo Meier's way of expressing was very different from Le Mayeur's way of expressing his passionate emotions. Covarrubias left behind many illustrations of the spirits of Bali at the time he visited. Looking now, it feels like a fresh presentation to me. Spies' pencil drawing is new to me, but the work makes me feel nostalgic like a familiar landscape. The many masterpieces I was able to see this time were all wonderful and impressive. For me, art appreciation is a blissful time to gently participate in the relationship between the artist and the object, which has been preserved over time. Finally, when I asked the staff a few questions, they kindly answered all the questions. Their team also said they were preparing a special exhibition for the G20 this year. Next to Spies' pencil drawing, there was a blank space. One day his other work may fill the wall. I'm looking forward to it. Postscript: "Hanako's mask" made by Rodin was also exhibited.
  • The museums is very rich in paintings and original crafts from all Asia. Very valuable resource to understand the iconography of the different cultures. Very beautiful
  • They have a plenty collection from eastern to western. Majority of their collections describe the culture, natural atmosphere and also past conditions in Bali.
