Interesting to visit this place, visit the areas where people were tortured, the caves where they detained the sentenced, this place will transport you to the ancient times of this city, highly recommended to visit this place ...

Unfortunately closed!

Unfortunately closed for major maintenance.
You can only visit the building from the outside.
However, there are tourist guides that explain the direct stages of the use that was given to this building.
What was previously known as the "Holy Office" ... still survived in our day and is called Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

If you're visiting Lima and love history and museums, this has to be in your places to visit.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and easy to follow when telling us the amazing and rich history behind the temple. Note:(our tour was explained in Spanish)

Make sure to wear confurtable shoes, we where up and down stairs and down the basement, some spaces where dark and narrow

Please don’t come as it has been closed now for ages and a local told me that it won’t be open soon. They are doing renovations and will be closed indefinitely.

STILL CLOSED

A previous person had said the museum was closed but we decided to check it out anyways because of the San Fransico church.
IT IS CLOSED. There was no sign, no notification. Just a women at the door who when we knocked opened it, shouted something we didnt understand and shut the door again!
Really too bad because we wanted to see it but just CHECK before you go because it is fustrating!

Not clear from Google or Tripadvsior or the website of the museum but this place is closed indefinitely. It seems there is some sort of construction going on and a sign in Spanish which I translated to mean closed (no English sign of course!!). Very poor on behalf of the government not to communicate to Google and TripAdvisor to indicate that it is closed and stupid to have on their website that it is open from Monday to Friday until 5pm with free guided tours! Avoid as it was a waste of our time!

I found this museum both very interesting and deeply disturbing. It highlights one of the cruelest periods in the history of Christianity, which is a story that needs to be told over and over. I applaud Peru for this museum.

This is a smallish place but very interesting. Definitely not for the feint of heart. An important look into a dark part of Peruvian and world history.

Must still be closed

I walked in through an unlocked door and sat down on a bench to organize my things, and no one said anything to me. A couple came in after me, through the same door, and were immediately accosted by the people manning the entry and told to leave. I actually had to walk up to them to ask if I could go into the museum before they realized my existence. Then they told me that the place was for workers only, and that I had to leave.

Curious experience, but it's currently closed, no clue when/if it re-opens.
