  • Super cool art museum, well worth a visit particularly with the student discount. The layout is mostly chronological, and works are well-curated with appropriate context and documentation. There is something for everyone here, from pre-colonial works through modern art. I spent about 2.5 hours here at the permanent collection, which felt just right. From what I saw, the (included) tours are very good as well. Highly recommended.
  • The museum has very few works to admire. I do not recommend the trip and the cost is 30 soles for one floor of exhibits. The bottom floor has basically nothing. What was advertised was Yoko Ono photos which were not any photos of anything. Anyways the place needs more things to see.
