The Balinese collection includes 61 pieces that were acquired in 1960, two years after the Javanese collection. This collection is stored in the Gamelan Room and used for classes taught by I Nyoman Wenten. We have a complete gamelan gong kebyar ensemble and other additional instruments in this collection.
