welcome to paradise, discover the real bali

Bali is one of the most popular holiday destinations on the planet. These days, mass tourism, urban development on the rice paddies, and plastic pollution threaten the image of the Indonesian island. The temporary exhibition ‘BALI - Welcome to Paradise’, on show at Tropenmuseum and Museum Volkenkunde, shows the popular holiday resort as well as the other side of paradise.

Visitors discover the invisible, spiritual worldand thatthe Balinese culture is still very much alive.The special collection is laid out in seven colourful, thematic rooms, and multimedia exhibits introduce you to a number of islanders. Highlights of the exhibition are a visit to a temple festival and an introduction to the rituals of life and death that play an important role in the lives of the Balinese.
