Embedded in the beautiful gardens of Nusa Dua Resort, Museum Pasifika offers an interesting addition to sunbathing, dining and shopping in that area: a collection of Pacific premier art, mainly 300 paintings, a few sculptures and around 250 objects.
In the “artists in Bali and Indonesia” section you’ll find paintings from famous Balinese artists like Nyoman Gunarsa and also fine art of Europeans having lived in Bali like Rudolf Bonnet, Adrien-Jean Le Mayeur, Han Snel, Emilio Ambron, Theo Meier and Maria Hofker, only to name a few.
Furthermore Museum Pasifika put new accents by introducing art from the Pacific regions, namely Indochina, Polynesia, Melanesia and China, something unique to Balinese museums.
