I really enjoyed going here. The building itself is really lovely as well as the photographs. The gallery only has a handful of photographs in it to illustrate Testino's work, about 30 in all, which isn't a great amount, however they are still worth seeing. The photographs are beautiful, but they seemed to have picked the most obvious ones. There was a room of beautiful photographs of Peruvian people which were very colourful, again there were only about 6 of them. The cafe was also a lovely place to have a drink and a bite to eat.

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

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!
