  • I have traveled several times to Lima and I did not know this Museum, I found it looking for information about the city but had never recommended. Go and spend time in the tour, was certainly the right choice. Mario Testino is a great photographer, their images are incredible, all his work is a work remarkable. There is a section where is exposes the collection permanent, in where stand out photographs of fashion and social, another room is dedicated to the high fashion, in where exhibits photographs of some costumes typical of Peru and another room shows part of a series of portraits made to the Princess Diana. There are also two rooms where presents temporary exhibitions of other artists, not necessarily linked to the picture, but quite interesting. I think that is a very good Museum, in a casona perfectly restored, that should know them inhabitants of Peru and the tourists, especially who like of the art and the photography.

  • A lovely exhibition. You can get a joint ticket withuseo Pedro De Osma that is good value, and there is some great photography here. The portraits of people in traditional dress, and the Diana pictures are a highlight
  • A nice photography museum in a great neighborhood with a temporary and permanent exhibit that reveals the extent of photographer Mario Testino's work.
  • Great museum about a wonderful photographer.
  • Testino's work is truly unique and captivating.
  • If you're a fan of photography, then this is definitely worth your time. Once inside you'll recognize many works all by this same artist, excellent work.
