It was a surprise to find this little museum in Barranco. The silver collection is really interesting. The price is also good: 20 soles.

If you like historic mansions, and allegoric paintings, and to see how wealthy Peruvians lived then, you must go this museum. The mansion is a Jewell, the private collection is superb. Royalty and High Society spent time at the many parties, carnival parties at this summer home of Mr. Osma. There are free tours in English and they last about... More

Very interesting museum of art from inca times. There are free guided tours at certain hours, the guide had a lot of knowledge of each piece presented there and in general. The gardens outside are beautiful as well.

If you have an hour to spare while in Barranco, go to Pedro de Osma. It's a lovely museum with an outstanding collection of silver objects and a beautiful garden. It's within walking distance of Iglesia La Ermita and the famous bridge. This museum offers a calm, relaxing atmosphere in a busy city. A place to escape.

This museum is a jewel. We were approached by an English-speaking docent in the front of the house. She was very knowledgeable and narrated our tour through the house and its amazing collection in impeccable English. Don't miss this gorgeous place!

We came upon this little museum by accident, but enjoyed it greatly. Our lovely tour guide gave us a personal and thorough lesson (in perfect English) in the art displayed and we learned about how the native peoples blended Catholicism and European art with their own ancient culture. I especially enjoyed seeing the original Spanish sketches next to paintings by... More
