Museo Pedro de Osma, Lima

4.6
#7 of 32 in Museums in Lima
Admire a small but memorable collection of colonial-era art at Museo Pedro de Osma, occupying a century-old mansion. The museum artfully displays its works through a series of grand rooms, with Peruvian paintings, furniture, sculpture, and jewelry taking top billing. Many of the paintings use the city as their setting, allowing you to see the changes that occurred in the urban area during and after the colonial era.

  • Sounds boring, but actually amazing. The building itself, a beautifully maintained former colonial residence, is worth the trip. And even if you're not Catholic, the art collection is historically fas...  more »
  • It is absolutely essential that you include in your tour of Lima (Barranco), because it is not only an extraordinary building of an eclecticism that is full of details but because its inside book a valuable collection of Peruvian art with excellent exponents in painting, sculpture, carving, and silverware. If banking Silva, a historian/Guide make sure you do not miss his passionate explanation of each of the periods and, especially, the importance that had the Viceroyalty of Peru before, during and after colonization. Another fact: the Museo Pedro de Osma is born by the altruism of an inhabitant of ravine that was devoted to collecting wonders to leave them after the enjoyment of friends and strangers.

  • Motivated by an attraction in Barranco, we went in search of the cusquenian art to this private museum managed by the Fundación Osma Gildemeister, but we realized with the unpleasant surprise that is closed for maintenance until mid-February 2018, we will return!

  • A great museum with patios! Worth to visit. If you also plan to visit MATE or MAC, they sell a combined ticket.
  • What a great museum . To be honest is a must to visit it and worth it.
  • We literally ran through this one as we had 15 minutes before closing. Should have done this one first then the MATE. Whatever I laid eyes on was worth a lot more time than I could give it. The museum is surprisingly largish inside.
  • Lovely building, with great artwork. The silver hall has some amazing things
  • Beautiful museum
