Museum Puri Lukisan is located on the main street of Ubud in the cultural heartland of Bali. The museum is 40 km from the airport. It has a large free parking lot at the entrance.
Our four exhibition buildings are open from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Our restaurant and café, overlooking the large garden and lotus pond, are open from 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM.
The museum is on a small hill in the center of Ubud. Its gardens and rice fields to the north and west offer breezes that make it cooler than the town streets below.

A large wooden sign at the high split gate on the north side of the street marks the entrance to the museum parking lot. Just across the street are Betel Nut Café and Casa Luna Restaurant.
Hours and admission
The museum is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Admission is Rp. 50,000 for adults. Children under 15 years old accompanied by an adult are free of charge. This policy does not apply to children in groups (see Group Visits below)
The Museum Puri Lukisan Café, open from 10:00 AM until late in the evening after the galleries are closed, is a hidden gem of a restaurant. The restaurant and bar offer reasonably priced, well-presented, Indonesian and Western food and drink in a quiet setting overlooking the museum gardens and lotus pond. Perfect for snacks and drinks between galleries or a relaxed lunch or dinner in the middle of Ubud, but away from the bustle of the main street, the Café is an unusually quiet, almost magical spot, in the evening after the galleries are closed.
