In front of the Bali museum there is a very wide field, the name of the field is the Puputan Badung field, and there is the Catur Muka statue (a four face statue).
The distance from Ngurah Rai airport is 15 kilometers, because of frequent traffic jams in the city of Denpasar, then it will need approximately 1 hour by car.
The Bali Museum in Denpasar initially only had a land area of 2,600 square meters and there were three divisions of each page, outside courtyard, central courtyard and inner courtyard.
Right on the independence day of the Republic of Indonesia, the management of the Bali museum in Denpasar was taken over by the provincial government of Bali. Then on January 5, 1965, the Indonesian government took over the management of the museum, which was then handed over to the department of education and culture. The education and culture office then gave the name, the Bali provincial state museum.
