(3/24/2013)

Less than one year after its renovation, the Bali Museum in downtown Denpasar has lost large sections of its roof due to high winds and rains that affected the building in the third week of March 2013.

Seputarbali.com reports that workers from the contractors who renovated the museum are now busily cleaning up debris from the fallen roof.

Anak Agung Gede Geriya of the Provincial Culture Office said, “We cleaned up the area immediately after it occurred because the renovation work is still in the warranty period meaning that the contractor must be responsible for all damage."

The damage to the museum’s roof did not cause any injuries to workers or visitors to the Museum.

The Bali Museum was built in 1910 and is comprised of a number of buildings erected in a traditional Balinese architectural style with each given names reflecting various regions of Bali.

A massive repair and renovation program on the Museum was undertaken in 2012 at a cost of hundreds of million of rupiah that included the roof of the Karangasem Pavilion damaged by weather last week.

Geriya suspects that undersizedl ceiling ribs recently installed on the roof were insufficiently strong to support new roofing and insulation.

Declining Visitors

In 2010 a total of 38,565 visited the museum, 24,592 of which were domestic visitors and 13,973 foreigners.

The following year, 2011, visitors declined to 35,055 comprised of 20,482 domestic tourists and 14,573 foreigners.

The total visitors to the Museum in 2012 declined once again with 28,226 people consisting of 14,180 domestic tourists and 13,246 foreign nationals.
