This place is awesome. We wandered in thinking we would see it and then head out. We ended up spending a few hours. It's like a little sanctuary of peace. The art is cool to see, there is a rice field, small river, coffee shop, and even live art - watch local dance and music lessons. It's quiet and not overcrowded. Entrance is about $5usd and well worth it. It's not the kind of art gallery you go to to see a Warhol or a matisse. But it is unique and special in its own way. A lot of local Balinese art.
Also a gallery and cultural center, set on beautiful grounds with several traditional buildings and a nice display of works: traditional Kamasan paintings, Batuan-style work and the only place in Bali to see works by German artist Walter Spies.You can also see local children practicing traditional Balinese dancing (check for times) and during gamelan practice. They have many cultural courses: covering traditional crafts, music, dance, religion.They also have near nightly dance/show with some of the better troupes on their own stage.
A peaceful place to contemplate Bali culture and artFor amazing art in an amazing space the ARMA is unique, it is a huge area that encompasses beautiful grounds, multiple stages, a few different collection of contemporary and traditional art along with rotating exhibits and creative programming
