We went to the Museum four days ago. The Museum was closed, and it seemed like it was closed for good. There were no opening hours posted. We asked a taxi driver in the area and he said it might open again at a later date.

Please note: as of mid-March 2018, the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo is in the process of moving to its new (albeit ancient) location at Calle Sucre, 104 near Calle St Agustín. I had a wonderful private tour, with the guide explaining each work of art and artist. The 16th-century casona is stunning and with each step of the rehabilitation, another marvel was uncovered, such as a 1-meter high tunnel that leads to the cathedral in the Plaza de Armas. During my visit, not all of the works had been transferred from the previous site. The institution works as a museum and a gallery, as some of the works are for sale. There is a tremendous amount of exhibition space and plans for contemporary art shows are in the works. There will also be a fine restaurant in a few months. The entire rehabilitation has been underwritten by a single, generous patron of the arts.

Disappointing that a beautiful city of a million can’t come up with a better museum of contemporary art. The gate was locked. Eventually, someone came to open it, took our admission, pocketed the bill, didn’t give us a ticket. We wandered around, several empty rooms, incoherent exhibits..

I'm really glad I found this place. It was actually quite easy to spot--just across from the train station, about a 15-20 minute walk from the Plaza de Armas. The admission was next to nothing (3 soles, I think), but the museum is worth more, definitely. The artwork was quite interesting, and its placement in the rather old house gives the museum even more character. Give it a go! You'll be glad you did.

Never made it inside as we walked down from the central plaza (get a taxi back uphill) to find the gates locked and a rather disreputable notice saying hours were 8 to 2. Three stars based upon the reports elsewhere of its unusually interesting contents.

We visited when the bottom floor exhibition was in rotation so only got to see the top floor of permanent collection. With seemingly three people of staff, you saw the love, handwork and soul in this museum. Plus, with no cafe, store or other typically "extras" in a museum experience, you'll leave truly refreshed.

We nearly missed this museum, but we're so glad we made the effort. Barely ten minutes walk south of the town centre, this small but beautifully curated gallery contains mainly sculpture by many of Peru's top young artists. The contrast with the very old, historic sights in the town centre made us realise that we wanted to find some of Peru's modern voice.

When we arrived, the main exhibit was being updated, but we were allowed in to see the temporary exhibit. Perhaps it was a happy coincidence of taste, but I found as much to admire here as I have on much longer visits to the Tate Modern in London. The beautiful garden also contains some sculpture and an old train carriage (it's opposite the main rail station).

The signage is in Spanish, so a phrasebook would probably be helpful but not strictly necessary.

Please don't miss it. It makes a wonderful morning visit, just a stroll out, and there's a great restaurant (Tipika) nearby for lunch.

Seeing the contemporary art of an area adds a special element, especially after all the religious art. This is no different -- contemporary artists of note, recent art exhibit winners, a noteworthy permanent exhibit, a lovely sculpture and flower garden (with an old train car?!), all in an old mansion. A nice 15 minute walk in the southern part of the city.
