  • Great small museum worth a visit if you are near downtown Lima. Available parking nearby, the second floor has a great collection of paintings and sculptures from Pre-Columbian to Spanish periods. Alm...  more »
  • The Museum has been completely renovated and presents a very interesting collection. It is an optimal alternative to the other museums in Lima above all by being located close to the Centre of the city minimising as well travel time.

  • 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
