In addition to its permanent collection of art, ARMA has a full schedule of daily dance performances and workshops.
The best part of the experience is not advertised: Mr. Agung Rai and his wife live on the property and can often be found working and mingling with guests on the property. Friendly and down-to-earth, Mrs Rai sold us our tickets and Mr. Rai appeared in the garden to tell us interesting tidbits about his favorite painters featured in his collection.
The works by I Gusti Nyoman Lempad and the special section on German painter Walter Spies who made a huge impact on Balinese art.
It can feel challenging to navigate the museum as there are few signs and limited staff to help guide you.
