This small museum at the north end of Sanur Beach evokes a time of innocence and beauty before the introduction of relatively recent laws banning "immodest dress." Even more impressive than the paintings by the Belgian artist of the young Balinese dancer he married and her friends is the small mansion in which the art and artifacts are housed: a lovely example of Balinese architecture decorated with finely carved and gilded wooden shutters.

Mr. Le Mayeur had an amazing love for Bali (and his Balinese wife). The grounds must have been wonderful in their heyday. Well worth a visit to see how the artist incorporated his studio and life. The museum is very small with several examples of...More

This historic place was amazing and the center of attraction was its architecture and the calligraphy over the pictures and the terracotta.

Well designed and a great theme. However, not maintained well and in urgent need of renovation. Plenty of potential.

It is really sad to see that the house of this Belgian painter and his Balinese wife is terribly neglected. It must have been beautiful 80 years ago when he built it. The doors and windows are all in sculpture wood. The twin walls are...More
