Beautiful house containing art

This is a very beautiful house, and has an interesting collection of religious art as well as artefacts (in a separate building), I recommend it!

My favorite part is the building itself and the silver collection. The rest was a lot of terrifying religious art. Some beautiful furniture too. Not hige, but inexpensive and a great way to spend an hour or so.

We literally ran through this one as we had 15 minutes before closing. Should have done this one first then the MATE. Whatever I laid eyes on was worth a lot more time than I could give it. The museum is surprisingly largish inside.

Beautiful house and collections, no doubt about it. Plus rarely in the world can you just walk through galleries without guards bothering you, which is delightful!

Set in a delightful house in Barranco, the Pedro de Osma Museum houses a great collection of Colonial era art as well as pre-Inca and Inca art and artefacts. The tour started out being interesting, but we got slightly bored after a bit in the Pre-Colubian art room

We originally had planned to see the MATE, but it was not open to the public so we went next door and found it interesting and the grounds are beautiful.

In the main house the collection of paintings was too gloomy for my liking. I loved the gardens. Out the back the silver collection was exquisit.

Really beautiful arts, but they should sometimes add some more information about the paintings etc. :) it's recommendable to get a tour guide if you want more information. Nice building, interesting architecture!

Visited the Pedro de Osma museum in Barranco and found it to be most enjoyable. Set in a beautiful restored home, the collection shows off some really exquisite pieces of the Cusco style Spanish Colonial painting. It also houses other very interesting pieces well worth the visit, and the neighborhood is charming
