What we say: 3.5 stars

About 1km west of the Ubud market is the Blanco Renaissance Cultural Museum, a collection of works by the Spanish artist Antonio Blanco who lived in Ubud until his death in 1999.

After consuming your complimentary drink on arrival, you are greeted by an enormous marble gate in the shape of the maestro's signature through which the museum is reached.

Outside of the museum are the family's gardens where a range of birds are kept on display. They include lots of the very rare Bali starlings, parrots of all kinds, toucans and at least one bird of paradise.

It's also possible to look at both Antonio and his son's art studio to get a glimpse into the madness of the creative process. Most people will spin through the museum in under an hour.
