The museum is located in a mansion in a beautiful neighborhood of Barranco and presents a great collection of colonial paintings. Highly recommended.

The museum is located in the Barranco district. Located in a lovely villa with handsome wood floors. The many rooms have galleries with paintings from well know artists, sculptures, furniture, silver and more. The silver area is breath taking. Plan on least an hour to get a quick view of all galleries. We strolled throughout in 1 1/2 housrs. Admission is S/20 but worth it.

..and walk around watching religious art. A very nice building reminding of a creamy weddingcake - but really an oasis in the middle of the noisiest part of Barranco

I thoroughly enjoyed the religious art with my family a good way to spend an hour on a Sunday afternoon. The guide was knowledgeable and spoke passable English. The S/20 entrance fee was a bit steep however.

Family home turned into a museum. Late 19c villa in Barranco houses a great collection of colonial art organized chronologically and with explanations of how local art evolved from European influences. Pretty garden with a pavilion with some further exhibits - not so good - and a modern gallery with a superb collection of silver as well as an exhibition space. Easily one of the best art museums in Lima
