Historical documents, evidence and artefact of Bali
Bali Museum is a small museum on the island of Bali that houses prehistoric and ancient artifacts. Its goal is to protect indigenous traditions from modern influences. Furthermore, this museum is conveniently placed on Denpasar's Major Wisnu Street, right in the heart of the city. Meanwhile, on the museum's north side, there is a magnificent Jagatnatha temple. Also in front of it are the Puputan Badung (Badung Courtyard) and the four-face statue (Catur Muka Statue). The government began the development of the Museum after recognizing the need of safeguarding, preserving, and protecting Balinese culture's heritage. Concerns over the decline of culture prompted the campaign. As a result, cultural legacy has vanished completely, with just photographs and documentations remaining.
The Museum, in order to preserve Balinese cultural history, developed a founding plan for a museum, which later became the Bali Museum.
The museum's object collections have been divided into many categories by the museum's management. The following topics are included in the classification:
- Collections of prehistoric artifacts
- Collections of historical eras
- Collection of ethnographic artifacts
Open : Weekdays, 09.00 am - 04.00 pm
