How to Get There
The Setia Darma House of Mask and Puppets sits on the fringes of Mas Village, near Ubud, a district famous for wood-carving. It’s not possible to get here by public transport so many travelers prefer to hire a private driver or join an organized tour.

When to Get There

Masks and Puppets in Indonesia
Indonesia’s 18,000-or-so islands are home to a fascinating array of mask and puppet traditions: masks feature in ceremonial dances on Hindu Bali, while wayang shadow puppets are an ancient Javanese performing tradition. Some of the most interesting masks on display at Setia Darma are from the east of the archipelago, with a distinctively tribal feel.
