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

A very attractive small collection in Barranco. A nice collection of colonial history including some stunning silver work.

Our guide, Bianca Silva, who works at the museum and whose services are included in the price of admission, is what made this visit worthwhile. Her explanations of the anonymous works of native painters and how they incorporated their own religious iconography into Catholic religious art was fascinating. For example, they equated the Virgin Mary with Pachamama, the goddess of... More

Viewing Spanish colonial style painting of religious figures done by native, untrained painters in the European style. Interesting study in blending the style and subjects. Also viewed some of the priceless silver objects on display. Gardens were nice too.

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
