  • It was a beautiful experience, entries are not so expensive... and although there are no guided tours, the Museum is small, because every one of the photos have a review... really is impressed with the room with photos that Lady Diana was taken before his death, and the Peruvian photographs did for Vogue magazine (also is another room). Photos are first, for those who love photography. Highly recommended

  • 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.
