Look at brochure when buying ticket

And then you will see 2 adjacent structures housing art. I failed to notice this until too late. The art collection in the main building is all religious, most very old, and not my thing
The attraction for me was the building itself-tall ceilings and wonderful stained glass windows and beautiful decorative trim

Beautiful grounds, nice presentations, especially the Inca material.
Feb 2020
We did not know about this museum, but the family is a rich mining family for over 200 years. The house is gorgeous. the rear building was the dining room, and has lots of family history and portraits. There is an interesting presentation of silver, but large parts are not that old. The religious paintings from the 17 and 18th centuries are exquisite, but not my faves. We bought a combination ticket to this and the MATE photo museum which is right down the block in another mansion.

Great collection of art in a stunning palace
Dec 2019
This private museum is a jewel, fist of all because of the beautiful palace in which it is located, and secondly because all the paintings and sculptures are beautifully laid out. There are wonderful examples of paintings from Hispanic period, both Cusco and Lima schools and each exhibit is a masterpiece.
Additionally, there is an exhibition space for silver objects, all very impressive.

LOVELY OLD BUILDING
Nov 2019
This museum is housed in a beautiful old building with a well-kept garden. The museum comprises a large collection of colonial art plus a certain amount of furniture of the same period. At the rear of the garden is situated an annexe containing ancient Inca artifacts. Sefinitely worth a visit.

This is a really good museum. Just colonial pintures. The building is an historic one and the location is in the bohemian block of Barranco.

One of the best collection of paintings of Cuzqueno times
Oct 2019
It has a remarkable collection of paintings and sculptures where you can truly appreciate the different types of art and how it evolved over time. The house itself is beautuful, as well as the gardens. At the end of the gardens there is a special collection of furniture which is absolutely impresive, even the ceilings decorations were very delicate and beautiful.
And dont miss the silverware collection, amazing collection of different sorts dating a couple of centuries back.

Hidden jem! Don’t miss it.

A little museum in Barranco that shouldn’t be missed in a visit to Lima.
From colonial pieces to Inka and pre-inka craft and objects; a very modern museum in its conception but with the added value of the historical setting of a beautiful beaux arts villa.
The villa is a museum itself: colonial furniture, colourful stained glass windows, a very welcoming and well kept garden...it’s the occasion for a respite from the chaos of the modern Lima and a quick remind of the essence of Perù from the roots to its most recent past.
It takes little time to visiti, but it’s so worth it! You can also buy the ticket for the three museums of Barranco together! A bargain!

Best Museum in Lima & No Crowds
Aug 2019 • Friends
If you enjoy Colonial art especially Latin American Colonial art this wonderful museum should be numero uno on your list. In the past week I've seen every major museum and tourist site in Lima and nothing comes close to this museum. The mansion was originally the fabulous summer home of a wealthy Mayor (of both Lima and Barranco) who began building an extraordinary, large collection of Peruvian Colonial religious art. The subject may not interest many people but for those who are interested this is a major must-see. Your entrance fee includes a guided tour in either English or Spanish.
