This small museum, located in Barranco, is a lovely stop if you’re in the area. The museum displays a large collection of baroque/colonial art in a beautiful colonial mansion. The setting, which also includes an extensive garden, is just as interesting as the art itself.

This beautiful building houses an interesting colonial painting collection. The highlight is the silver display. Located two houses away from MATE. Worth a quick visit.

We went on a tour of the Museo Pedro de Osma with the English-speaking tour guide Blanca Silva. She gave a very interesting tour where she went on to explain many of the stories surrounding the art pieces there from the Baroque ages to more present times. We took a look around the magnificient house, once the humble abode of... More

Located in the bohemian district of Barranco, this renovated mansion and museum is worth a visit, particularly if you are in Barranco. The mansion used to belong to Mr. Pedro de Osma who held in it a great collection of art from Peru’s colonial times of the 16th to 18th century. The art includes paintings, silverworks, sculpture and furniture. The... More

Beautiful art and an incredibly gorgeous setting. It wasn't crowded and it was so wonderful to take it all in. I walked away with so much more knowledge of Peruvian history and art.

We visited MATE and were asked if we wanted to buy a combination ticket to also visit the Osma Museum (I assume that is how many visitors choose to visit the museum). The museum is housed in a beautiful old mansion on Barranco's Main Street. There are several galleries in the main house (there is a really good printed gallery... More

We visited Museo Pedro de Osma right after seeing Mario Testino's excellent presentations next door at MATE. Each requires a ticket, but youget a reduced price if you visit both. This museum is a nice representation of the residence of one of Lima's pre-eminent architects. The art is heavily slanted to that of the Catholic Church (and quite a contrast... More

This museum was one of the first that I saw in Peru, and it gave some great information about the history and role of religion (specifically Catholicism) in the country. There are 10 different sections of the museum and it is 10 soles for students (I believe double for non-students), with art, wood carvings (like tables), and a lot of... More

The museum is located in what was the summer house for Pedro de Osma a philantropist and tologist that lived in Peru in the 1400s´. This house is a small palace painted in white and fine architecture that contains lots of art pieces, paintings and sculptures. Each room in the house has a theme or style of painting and decoration... More
