  • This is the only museum in Peru that shows the complete Peruvian culture. From pre-inkas to today's art. Definitely a must when in Lima.
  • Fantastic range of art from ceramics to textiles to paintings, silver, sculpture, photos etc across all eras from pre Inca to modern. Free on Thursdays from 3pm - 7pm. DEFINITELY worth a visit! :)
  • Definitely worth the visit for a couple of hours. The pre-columbian art was much more interesting than I had imagined.
  • a cold place. 2nd floor was closed due to restaurations. pro: student discount
  • Is the best, the art to its fullest expression and also workshops there are very cheap of music, painting, dance
