  • It's a nice building, with a central courtyard. The art was not overwhelming, and we thought it odd that the management thought it okay to allow mangy dogs to wander throughout. I was glad that it was...  more »
  • A very nice Museum and care, what I realized is that some paintings are hung on nails supported in the frame of the painting and that is damaging the wooden frames that are beautiful. The Museum is in a House with several environments and different types of paints or display of art, there is an altar of Church very interesting and decorated colorful.

  • As I said, it is not allowed to take pictures by which try to write what I looked like this visit to critically: the lighting should improve because if it is a Museum and there are many paintings, it would allow much more appreciate the beauty of the paintings because they are very good. They could identify with name salons and that's my opinion be not understood completely. Hall 11. There is a really beautiful painting showing to Cusco with the Spaniards in the plaza, the Cathedral shows that it is in full construction. There are carriages where moved to the figures of the churches in procession. The paintings of Cusco where they exit the same painter in the box are and people look to this painter. The idea is very nice because always shown apart from everyone. Living room 15. Them stained glass are spectacular by the details, one is can approach to 50 cm and can appreciate the Crown, the rings, the piano, incredible. The story of works takes place in 17TH century. Hall 10. Is one of these carts that raised to carry to the sovereign / to. were for two servants, that have that have been very strong. Very nice. The chapel. The Altar should be gold, very valuable. In this place all the painters, apparently are Inca, no Spanish. Bye. Carlos de Chile.
