I found this museum to be most interesting and well worth the visit. There weren't many people when I was there, the houses and grounds are gorgeous and it's a peek back into another time period. Highly recommend!!

I have to admit that I am not much of a museum person. I enjoy short and exquisite visits, and I do not read every legend or have to see it all. But this lovely palace that I remember admiring from afar during my childhood as we made the daily run to the beach in Lima, is finally open to... More

The rooms are devoted to the paintings collected by Pedro de Osma. Many rooms contain religious paintings; most interesting to me were the paintings of the Cuzco School.

For those lovers of religious paintings and the message and history behind them, this is the museum to see. There is also a rotating contemporary art display in another building. For a slightly higher entry fee, you can also see the photography museum on the same block.

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.
