This museum was small and strange. There were a couple rooms full of random works of modern art with no descriptions. It wasn't a total waste, as we had free entry on the tourist ticket, but I would not recommend going out of your way...More

I think many of the reviews are a bit harsh, since virtually everyone goes there on the tourist ticket and thus doesn’t pay extra. It’s modest but it’s not like it’s hard or time-consuming to get to or to walk around. When I visited, there...More

We toured this museum on the Boleto Turistico but unless you have that, enjoy the plaza instead. Two galleries off the entry way...at the time one with bizarre clown themed paintings and the other with some macabre sculptures. The colonial exterior was pretty but the...More

Hit or miss. I love contemporary art but the first exhibit that we saw honestly looked like a high school kid’s sketchbook... or doodles on the algebra homework crumpled up at the bottom of his backpack. But the second exhibit displayed incredible, hyper-realistic watercolor paintings...More

We went inside just because it was included in the Cusco ticket Luckily it is small and easy to get out as there is nothing to see there. It's a joke

It was a rainy last day & the museum was free with the Boleto Touristico. Thank goodness as if you'd had to pay you'd feel cheated. But it got me out of the rain for 30 minutes i wont get back. The exhibits are very...More

The entrance to this museum is already included in the general tourist ticket which you need to purchase for the other famous Inca sites. So if your entry is valid and you are around the main square and have some time to kill then and...More

As far as we could tell there was really only one room with about 12 works, mostly graphic art. The courtyard was beautiful and there were some art-like banners hanging on the hallway walls but that was about it. This building seems to be a...More

Why is this even a museum?. It's a bunch of junk hanging on the walls and items being displayed. They don't even use an easel to display the art...they use a broken chair. They should be ashamed to even open the doors to this place.

The first room had only 2 artists, and the contrast was stunning, but we absolutely loved one of them. Inside the courtyard is a smorgasboard of fine art, especially 3d sculptures. Upstairs is one of the greatest collections of contemporary art we've ever seen. We...More
