What a wonderful museum of Italian impressionist art. Very inexpensive but wonder painting and sculptures. Beautiful building in the middle of nice city park. Lots of traffic but worth the adventure.

The building is exquisite. The collection consists of 6 rooms. Interesting Italian art collection. However you have to really want to see this museum to brave the traffic into congested and grimy central Lima to go here. The location is a pity.

It is a really small museum, but since It was rated one of the most beautiful, we decided to visit it. You cannot compare this museum with a european one, but it was nice to spend the time walking around. ..

This museum is not on the tourist radar and that should change. It's not big but packs a lot of great paintings and some nice sculptures. For just 6 soles you can spend an hour looking at great Italian art from the early 20th century...More

Housed in a beautiful building in Parque de la Cultura, this museum displays some exquisite art of the Italian Impressionist era. While the collection is rather small, there are excellent works by artists unfamiliar to me. There are paintings, bronze & marble sculptures. The brochure...More

This museum is located in a beautiful building just north of the Parque de La Exposicion. The collection is almost all from the turn of the 19th-20th centuries, so there probably won't be anything here that you've heard of. Explanations of the works are in...More

For 6 soles this is a reasonable museum to come to for an hour or so, with a fairly concise sized collection of works, ranging from intriguing to tepid in interest level for me. The bulk of the collection at the time of my visit...More
