With the fall of Klungkung kingdom into the hands of the Netherlands on 28 April 1908 indicating the overall Bali under the authority of the Dutch colonial government. This situation would lead to changes in governance, among others Bali is initially somewhat closed to outside nations become increasingly open especially for the Europeans, especially the Dutch.

This openness increasingly provide opportunities for other foreign nations to come to Bali. Foreign nation consisting of various segments of society such as traders, government officials, tourists and so of course have different interests in accordance with the profession. Then when he returned to his country always brings -benda cultural objects as souvenirs, or made personal collection. Such a situation is that if left unchecked would result in the impoverishment of the cultural heritage of Bali's leading scientists, humanists and Dutch artists try to prevent it and at the same time preserving the culture of Bali.

In 1910, W.F.J.Kroon, a Resident Assistant for South Bali, after having input / donation considerable thought of Th.A. Resink about cultural preservation, sparked an idea to establish a museum of ethnography in order to protect cultural objects from extinction.

The idea received from the scientists, artists, and support of all the kings of the whole Bali. Furthermore Kroon ordered Kurt Grundler an architect German who at that time was in Bali as a tourist researchers, to plan together with the undagi (an expert in traditional Balinese buildings), among others, I Gusti Ketut Rai and I Gusti Ketut Gede Kandel of Denpasar.

It must be realized that in order to make the traditional buildings of the undagi unlikely to ignore the ejection Asta Kosala-klainnya, as well as some religious aspects that made the main grip. While Kurt Grundler as a modern building planners may emphasize the strength and function as a museum.

After going through a fairly mature preparation can finally decided to build a museum in the form of a combination of architectural forms Pura (place of prayer) and Castle (the royal palace). Established on an area of ​​2,600 m2 covering three pages, namely the outer courtyard (jaba), a central courtyard (jaba middle) and pages in (Viscera), each page to be limited by a wall and gate (temples briefly and temples brackets) as an entrance , a Hall Kulkul (tower gong) in the south jaba middle.

In the northwest corner stands a Bengong Hall that at the time of the royal family peristirahatn used as a king when you want to observe the situation outside the palace. And in front of the building there is sebuath beji Tabanan (baths for the royal family). Roofs of palm fiber and in Bali is only in use for building the temple.

On the page there are three buildings each called Building Tabanan, Karangasem Building and Buleleng building is in use to show off the collection. The names of the building is taken from the names of the regions that the building and is considered to represent the architectural style of South Bali, East Bali, and North Bali. After construction is completed, the museum officially opened on 8 December 1932 by the name of Bali Museum, and is managed by Yayasan Bali Museum.

After Indonesia gained its independence on August 17, 1945, Bali Museum was taken over by the Provincial Government of Bali. Because the state of the situation is still in the initial round and face the war with NICA and Japan, then on January 5, 1965 submitted to the Central Government under the Ministry of Education and Culture, and became a public museum province with the name of the State Museum of Bali province.
