  • Come to this museum always is rewarding, good structure, the amplitude of its rooms and the didactic is the tour each time and cultures exposed, however come in Sunday and a first Sunday of month, encouraged to think that there are still responsible for parents in the Peru that moved by the desire to teach their children the immense legacy that we have , they encourage their children to learn a little more about our beautiful country! Good initiative of the Ministry of culture to achieve these great museums to all Peruvians, strolling through each room of the Mali, exudes pride in the Peru! Visit it, for me it is the 4th time since it was reopened and it would continue coming to enjoy textiles, ceramics and paintings which houses.

  • The place is beautiful! The outside has beautiful gardens (the willingness to spend the day there just lying in the grass) and the collection is sensational. When I visited were works and the history of the Nazca people, simply amazing! We were lucky enough to still do not pay the entry, on Thursday afternoon, from the 3:00 pm admission is free. Worth visiting!

  • It's awesome! You can discover the history of the Peruvian art in just one place.
  • Great art museum. Cannot miss Nasca special temporary exhibition until October!
  • The Nasca exhibit is the best ever done by MALI. It is thorough, well informed and didactic. Very well planned, takes advantage of current museographic techniques to shed light on the mysterious desert dwellers, Nasca and Paracas. Indispensable visit in Lima this year! The building itself is so beautiful, quintessentially limenian in spite of its French origen. Go, by all means and enjoy.
  • Great collection. Take note! There is free admission every Thurs, 3pm onwards and first Fri of each month from 5-10pm.
  • It's the best museum in terms of its range of collections. From the ancient right up-to the present including absurd avant-garde stuff. Excuse my manners, por favor! The ground floor has the modern offerings. The exhibit which struck me was the amazing collection of book covers of the books captured from the militant 'Shining Path' communist party leadership. The books covered an international range of nationalist and revolutionary leaders from all continents. It's staggers belief that such an intellectual grounding could lead to a steady deterioration from communist party politics, to terrorism and eventually to drug smuggling. The other one was of the Mexicans, Diego Rivera, Orozco and Sigueiros. Orozco's pen and ink captures the human condition in a way that I've never experienced. Go out of your way to check this out. Sorry no pics, I busy videoing it all.
