  • The Museum is for who likes photography and in particular Mario Testino. In my humble opinion is excellent "or much or little", it is just very Mario Testino. The Peruvian costume room is impressive.

  • If you are in the vicinity. The House is well maintained, clean and well located. We went on a Sunday ... half price and children (but also don't enjoy so much). The collection is for those who like the subject. The exhibition of the INCA people is that really worth it. Beautiful colors, exceptional work.

  • 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.
