The food at the restaurant is first rate and the art is stand alone terrific. Great variety of subjects including a room dedicated to Lady Di. Well worth a visit if in Lima

“A must seen at your next trip in Lima”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

It a small pearl in the city of Lima. Located in the boheme, romantic and exiting dictricts of Lima, Barranco. This museum shows the Artwork of Mario Testino. Why would he open a Museum here? He's peruvian! In here you will be able to see not only his artwork, some of the Artwork, you would only see in the most famous contemporary Art museums of the world.
I can just recommend it!

“Wow!”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Loved this gallery - an unexpected contemporary exhibition of Mario's beautiful fashion photos exhibited in a beatuifully renovated tunr of the last century home. I particularly loved the Peruvian Folk costume photos - worth a visit just to see these.
