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

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!
