  • Magnificently restored the mansion that houses the MATE, is a truly Barranquina that is worth visiting. The photographer Mario Testino is a brilliant artist and all it presents is great.

  • Worth the visit to observe the work of the photographer. At the time of my visit, there was a room with pictures of Peruvians, of excellent quality, but that contrasted quite from other pictures. Anyway, worth a visit.

  • I don't think this is a must see if you're short on time, but it certainly was interesting. The campus was beautiful. I spent about an hour.  more »

  • 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.
