La Casa de la Gastronomía Peruana is located in the old Post Office building just a few meters from Lima’s City Square. Only if you have time.

Great Intro to Peruvian Food!
Apr. 2017 • Couples
We were just walking down the center of Lima and came upon this museum. We were glad we did because it gave us an insight into the food that is traditional there. It explain different types of food and prep and finally how they look. Well for dinner we knew what we were looking for! lol

Magnific introduction to Peruvian cousine
Nov. 2015 • Friends
Former post office changed to museum. Explication only in Spanish. If you know Spanish you can enjoy description of various dishes, their way top prepare them and history. Especially with local spanish names of these dishes which are different from standard Spanish from Spain. It gives general information what are the local dishes in different areas of Peru.

Fun Museum
Apr. 2016 • Family
The museum is very close to the Plaza des Armas and is a good starting point to learn about Peruvian cuisine. The entrance ticket costs 3 soles per person . The museum mixes pictures, scenes with life size sculptures and artifacts. You will also find a copy of the Last Supper by Marcos Zapata , a reinterpretation of DaVinci's Last Supper but filled with Andean symbols: guinea pig instead of lamb, papaya etc...The display are set in a logical order, starting with the climate and land particularities, the main crops in each area , the dishes specific to each region, the contributions of "immigrants" to the Peruvian cuisine: Africans, Japanese, Moores and Arabs. the Moorish influence can be seen in the churches architecture as well e.g the Francisian cathedral of Lima. The museum display the most important dishes with a description of the ingredients. You can take pictures and show them at restaurants if you want to try one or more.

Rip off

we bought tickets to this place in hope of seeing it. Lady at the ticket counter took our money treacherously without telling us that all the rooms were closed except two with some temporary exhibits of 1971-93 postage stamps. Very disappointing.. and waste of time and money

Nice museum
Dec. 2015 • Couples
We were a little late and only had 30 minutes to visit the museum. For 3 soles per person that was ok. The museum looked nice and gave me some ideas what other dishes I still can try in this country. All explanation is in Spanish though.

Good to learn Peruvian cuisine
Nov. 2015 • Couples
This museum was good for me, as a beginner, to learn Peruvian food. The most interesting exhibition was the picture of 'Last Supper' where Jesus is about to eat grilled mouse, cuy.

Nice surprise!
May 2015 • Couples
It was a Museums Day when we walked by this great Museum. It was free that day so we jumped into the museum and enjoyed the visit a lot! Great peruvian food history can be found here, sample plates (too bad not edible), we love food so this museum was perfect for us! It is a small museum, so we spent there about 20minutes. After visiting this museum make sure you go get something to eat!!

Amazing presentation of Peru's amazing food. Not much commentary in English, but I think non-Castillian readers can cope.

Fun 1/2 Hour look at Peruvian Food
Feb. 2015 • Friends
We had half an hour to wait for the changing of the guard at Plaza de Armas, so we went down the street to the old Postal and Telephone building, which is now a museum to Peruvian food. Because of the diversity of climate and cultures in Peru, the food varies between regions. It was a fun visit with great pictures, making the next trip to a restaurant more clear.
