Agung Rai Museum of Art

The Agung Rai Museum of Art (ARMA) is part of a gallery, cultural centre and accommodation venture in Pengosekan, Ubud, owned and founded by Balinese entrepreneur and art collector, Anak Agung Gde Rai. The museum features two main large buildings filled with exhibits displaying a large collection of artworks. 

Agung Rai Museum of Art is located in Pengosekan, approximately three km south of the main Ubud centre and 25km north of the provincial capital of Denpasar, in the regency of Gianyar, central Bali.

The Agung Rai Museum of Art covers a sprawling 5Ha, and was the brainchild of collector Anak Agung Gde Rai who put great attention to the preservation and promotion of arts. The museum was inaugurated by the Ministry of Culture and Education in 1996 and managed by the ARMA Foundation, established the same year.

Agung Rai Museum of Art features traditional Balinese architecture and is surrounded by tropical gardens. Among the notable works in its collections are pieces by late Indonesian artists Raden Saleh and Affandi, and legendary painters Walter Spies, Rudolf Bonnet and Adrian Le Mayeur. Local Balinese masterpieces include those by Balinese painter Nyoman Lempad, as well as classical Kamasan-style and Batuan-style paintings originating from their respective villages/regions. 

ARMA is not just about its vast art collection; it is a place where visitors can learn much about Balinese traditions and cultural aspects. Traditional Balinese gamelan orchestras, woodcarvings, Balinese dance and history, indigenous fabrics, and traditional cuisine are all bonus highlights here. Visitors to the museum complex can enjoy interactivity led by a guide. Exhibitions at Agung Rai Museum of Art are regularly held, presenting legendary masterpieces as well as promoting young, upcoming and potential artists.

A good time to visit this museum is during the afternoon when, after viewing the art collections, visitors can enjoy snacks or dinner at a cafe located within the museum area or watch traditional dance performances regularly scheduled at the museum complex. 

Live Balinese dance performances usually commence Monday to Friday 15:00 – 17:00; and Sunday 10:30 – 12:00, with varying gamelan orchestral sessions. The ARMA open stage is the common venue for these scheduled performances where visiting Indonesian and international art troupes also frequently perform.
