  • Discover Lima through the eyes of its artists. Whether a sculpture by a hometown favorite or a private collection painting by a well-known big-wig, art gives you a glimpse into the soul of a place, and the folks that call it home. In order to get familiar with the history of the Peruvian art, and very specially with art of Lima, there are a few art museums that you should visit: Pedro de Osma Museum, Museo de Arte religioso and Museo de Arte de Lima, which will provide you with an accurate overview of the historical artistic background of this city. And of course, this will help you understand some of the topics, themes and icons that artists work with nowadays. As for contemporary art and handicrafts, museum Casa de la Riva Agüero and its temporary exhibitiosn are also a must, while if you are interested in modern artistic production, we suggest the Galeria de la Municipalidad de Miraflores, Centro Cultural Ricardo Palma and Forum, places that usually showcase many of the best art exhibitions in the city. So, go high-brow, low-brow and everything in-between at the art museums and galleries of Lima. Just don't touch the paintings.
