  • I visited it after 2 years une loved it. They are only two rooms, but they are worth, show something different.

  • The museum only had 2 exhibits, one had modern art and the second was an interactive exhibit. Not worth a visit right now, maybe when they open the 3rd exhibit.  more »
  • Located near Miraflores, the MAC-Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Lima is a must-see attraction for those who appreciate contemporary art. The building has a unique architectural beauty and the external space is very nice. There is a diner specializing in natural food and drinks. It is a small museum, with just three exhibition halls. So, don't wait too long.

  • Very chic. 3 exhibit spaces all accessable with a single admission of 10 soles ($3 US). On this visit one space had paintings of transvestites in stately poses. The second space had hanging and installation art making commentary about politics and religion, tasteful and provocative. The third space was running a video of one side of a multi-story apartment building showing the movements and activities of residents on their exposed balconies. About 75 apartments are in view all the time. The gift shop had handsome, unusual and beautifully designed handbags, purses and eye glass cases; art books, and animal figures made of rubber.
  • Gorgeous and thought provoking exhibitions. Helpful gallery attendants. Interactive exhibits. Inexpensive entry. A friendly institution on all accounts.
  • Nice display of modern cultural art and exhibits. The facilities overall are nice and clean. I really enjoyed the exploding concrete wall that was captured frozen mid-explosion. Probably one of the coolest displays I have seen. Only 6 soles for entry - can't beat that!
  • Very interesting museum. Has 3 main exhibitions going on at all times. Worth a visit.
  • At the time of my visit there weren't many things to see, although the outdoor cafe is really nice to spend the evening
