Although they are only sculptures but all models are made in great details, both in terms of shapes, colors and sizes. Additionally, the birds are classified into 10 groups such as the seabird, long-legged bird, nocturnal bird, water bird, wetland bird, land bird, reptile-eater bird, insect-eater bird and others. According to Frank, admission to the museum was free of charge. The museum was open every day from morning to evening at 5:00 p.m. Local Time. Before you see a good few collections of birds, firstly visitors would be invited to watch a movie telling story about different types of birds living in Bali. “Through the screening of this movie, apart from seeing the bird collection, visitors will get entertainment all at once,” said Frank Williams holding a bachelor degree in biology. In addition to providing job opportunity for the local community of Tengkulak Hamlet, the Bali Bird Museum was also expected to be an option for tourists traveling in Bali. “On that account, we also distribute brochures, books as well as information via the Internet,” he said.
