With a free afternoon to do something in Miraflores, we chose this contemporary art museum. It was perfect for a two-hour visit.

It’s not a large museum—just a few buildings—but that made it accessible and easy to experience in an afternoon.

There was a small gallery of a what seemed to be a permanent collection; the works were focused on Latin American artists. I really enjoyed many of these paintings, especially those that were riots of color.

A special exhibition was focused on color theory. It was fabulous!—educational, quirky, and interactive, with a nice mix across various forms of media.

The setting of the museum, right on the coast, was lovely, too—a large green space is a nice place to rest for a bit, enjoy the views, and perhaps have a picnic.

Worth an afternoon!

Pop and contemporary art in steel and glass structure. Beautiful grounds around it. Small. Reasonably inexpensive.
Interesting but nothing special

Waste of the 10 minutes it took to walk through. Looked like a middle school art show. Don't waste your time or money here!

Literally less than ten minutes worth of stuff to see. On top of that the staff were a bit rude. The space is nice, but that’s all I can say about this.

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.

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 .

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!
