Museum Rudana

Ubud Region

This imposing museum overlooking rice fields is the creation of local politician and art lover Nyoman Rudana and his wife, Ni Wayan Olasthini. The three floors contain more than 400 traditional paintings, including a calendar dated to the 1840s, some Lempad drawings and more modern pieces. The museum is located next to the Rudana's commercial gallery.
