Rudana Museum

Museum Rudana was built under the idealism of Nyoman Rudana, as the founder who consider that art is universal, therefore, it contributes to the harmonious process between men and God ( parahyangan ), men and their fellow human beings ( pawongan ), and men with nature ( palemahan ), reflected in the Balinese philosophy of Tri Hita Karana, which art has a great contribution in spreading world peace, prosperity and brotherhood amongst mankind.

The main philosophy in collecting paintings and art objects in this museum is based on the concept of humanism, which exists for the benefit of humans. 

Its blessing ceremony was held on August 11, 1995 as part of Indonesia's 50th Independence anniversary with its Golden Indonesia Spirit. President Soeharto officially opened it on December 26, 1995.
