Not worth the time or money.
Dec 2019
Unless you are in the immediate area, it will take you more time to get here than to walk in, see everything, and get out. What a waste. Pictures of rocks, projected on rocks? One room had a pile of dirt. I don't know if that was an exhibit or work in progress. Even the washrooms are two horrid stalls outside the main building. And for all this, I have to pay a premium as a guest in this country? Color me offended.

Really pleasant surprise
Jan 2020
This museum does not seem very well advertised and the staff in our nearby hotel had not heard of it. However, we followed our instincts and found it quite easily. First we had a delicious snack in the nearby garden. This place was full of students enjoying the morning sun. The museum has a fabulous shop and the architecture and layout is great. It's an all white series of spaces. The exhibition we saw focussed on displaced people. Frustratingly the explanations were only in Spanish, but the political messages of the simple but powerful pieces was very clear. I was deeply moved. The pieces are very daring. This was the first day for us in Peru, so good to be impressed by really contemporary works…..a contrast with the ancient splendours to come. If you enjoy art this gallery is well worth a visit .

Wish it were bigger for more beautiful art!
Oct 2019
Definitely worth the small fee to go. such beautiful art with lots of history about local culture. Make sure to see everything there is to see on the grounds as they had some interesting outside exhibits as well. And a cute little coffee shop!

Pointless, uninteresting and waste of money
Oct 2019 • Couples
My girlfriend and I visited the ‘museum’ during our trip to Lima, and I wish we had read the reviews before coming.
20 soles entry for non-Peruvian residents and all in all there really isn’t much to see.
We really took our time and we managed to get round the whole three rooms in about 20 minutes.
I would’ve given a one star rating but we learnt a few facts about immigration from Venezuela and China and therefore this was the only credit I can give.
We didn’t eat in the restaurant so I can’t comment on this.
Overall - don’t waste your money.

Not a good exhibition
Sep 2019
I think this museum really depends on what they're exhibiting. When we were there, it was quite the boring exhibition, and with only two small rooms and a big one (of which half was sort of a pop-up library), it didn't offer much. The explanations were extremely minimal, the art was mediocre, not really reflecting the topic of the exhibition and well, you could go through the museum in 15 minutes if you were to spend a minute with each art piece...
I think if it's a good exhibition the museum could be really cool, as the halls are spacious and big, giving it a nice vibe, but if the explanations are always this minimal, it would still only end up being a photogenic museum.

Small, but cheap
May 2019 • Friends
It is small museum, there is a nice collection inside and some beautiful gardens.
It is better to check which are the expositions. Avoid the restaurant, the food is not so good.

Food poisoning at the bar.
Apr 2019 • Friends
We really enjoyed the relax bar situated outside the museum. Unfortunately be aware that we got food poisoning from the lemonade and the smotthie that we took there. They probably used tap water to prepare the baverage, which is not suitable for European stomachs. Shame we got so seek on our last day in Pérou. Have a soda if you decide to drink there.

Probably one of the worst contemporary art museums we have ever been to - 20sols - and we saw the whole exhibition in 20 minutes - complete waste of money and time - unimpressed
