Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The museum has art pieces from different periods of Peru and a lot of the collection are stunning. Most of the descriptions are quite detailed but some are repetitive and didn’t offer a lot of new information.

    In the gold room, there’s a small section of the wall where the light went out. Wish they actually fixed it.

    Also during the visit, there is some preparation for an event where workers were setting up metal framework to cover the courtyard, which closed off access to one of the first floor room and prevented people from going on the hallway on most of second floor.

    Wow, what a splendid display of traditional weaving and beyond. Maximo was there and came to say hello to me. Made my day to speak to him about his weaving and learn about his techniques in weaving. If you love color and history pre Inca, this is the place to be. His imagination is endless. Each piece is a story and just so magical in the presentation of color and stitch detail.

    I went in here without a guide as I had free time. I wish I had a guide to help explain more about it. The architecture is superb and the crypts are something else, the smell really gives an ambience.

    I liked this place with some special art designs. Hilario's signature is long neck images with unusual breast placement. Worth a view if you are near by.

    If you are looking for a beautiful, authentic piece of Peru to take home, this is the store. It is not full of touristy stuff. This store has handmade, quality items and you can tell the difference. Save yourself some time and shop here! Great prices too!

    The museum is really small, it has not much to offer. If it wasn't included in the boleto turistico it would not be worth visiting at all, except for super art nerds.

    An eclectic mix of contemporary works, as well as showcases of better known local artists, all in a beautiful working building.
    Commentary on the seasonal exhibits is in Spanish, so have your translator app handy if you want to know more.

    We stopped in at this museum because we had purchased the boleto turistico and it was included in the cost. I would not recommend paying for admission separate from the boleto turistico. It is located in the basement of the Galerias Turisticas and it feels like a cast aside collection of items that do not fit elsewhere.
