One of the pillars of Ubud's reputation as Bali's cultural capital is the presence of numerous museums devoted not just to Balinese but also to Indonesian and international art and culture. One of such museums is the Agung Rai Museum of Art (ARMA).

ARMA features collection from the works of German artist Walter Spies and Javanese Raden Saleh. It also has a good collection of classical Kamasan paintings, Batuan-style creations from the 1930s and '40s as well as works of Lempad, Affandi, Sadali, Hofker, Bonnet and Le Mayeur.

The collections are housed in two main buildings set amidst a sprawling compound of beautifully lanscaped gardens, pools, ponds, and an open air theater. One of the interesting times to visit ARMA is during dance and theater rehearsals, mostly of child performers.
