There's tons of art in Cusco, street vendors, market stalls, etc, and after a while it starts looking all the same - scenes of colonial stone paved streets, traditionally-clad residents, the token llama, Machu Picchu, etc. The Museo de Arte Contemporaneo is a refreshing break from the copies. Here you'll see exhibits of art that offer modern takes on the history of Cusco & Peru as well as landscapes and abstract pieces. Many of the pieces are from local artists, but the collection, a good part of which was the donation of a local curator, also includes national and international artists. All in all, this museum is a breath of fresh air for art lovers, or people curious about contemporary art in Cusco, and pairs excellently with a visit to the Museo de Historia Regional on the other side of Plaza Regocijo.
Admission to this museum is free. If you've purchased a Boleto Turistico, it's listed on there with location on the map and admission hours.
