  • If you love old classic cars, this private museum is a must see. I've been there on several occasions and enjoy it every time. 
  • Jorge Nicolini bought his first car in 18 years and continues to buy exceptional cars after more than fifty years. Receives visitors in person and tells the story of his cars all perfectly restored in the workshop of his Museum. On display are more than a hundred mostly American cars, mostly bought within Peru and belonged to families of rich landowners or entrepreneurs in the country, many of Italian origin. Customised cars, gardener with the exterior cladding and silver handles, Rolls-Royce, Cadillac, Lincoln, Ford, Jaguar, Fiat and Ferrari, all perfectly Mackenzie and restored at the highest level, so a treat not to be missed for fans of vintage cars. The only problem is the distance: from Miraflores nearly an hour's drive away.

  • If you have any interest in cars this place won't disappoint you. The collection is immaculate and all the vehicles are in roadworthy condition.
  • If u like antique cars this is the best collection in South America
  • i love the cars
  • An excellent Museum and a decent collection! All cars (about 130) kept in good condition. Apart from the fact that everyone is on the go, all parts original, shows that literally dust blow away with the car. With us was a pleasant guide and the owner even came out of the Museum with his son, said hello. You can see the process of restoration. Price for entrance 20 soles.
