Why is this even a museum?. It's a bunch of junk hanging on the walls and items being displayed. They don't even use an easel to display the art...they use a broken chair. They should be ashamed to even open the doors to this place.

The first room had only 2 artists, and the contrast was stunning, but we absolutely loved one of them. Inside the courtyard is a smorgasboard of fine art, especially 3d sculptures. Upstairs is one of the greatest collections of contemporary art we've ever seen. We...More

This is not a big museum. Also, your tourist ticket will cover the entrance fee. That was the reason i visited this museum. Not much to see, but you can still sense the culture of inka.

This museum is very small and not worth the time to see. One exhibit hall (if you can even call it that) seemed almost bare when we were there. It was time we'll never get back and time we could have spent doing something else....More

Somehow I expected more. There are too few really good paintings, especially considering the Cusco tradition and historic importance in art... Present day contribution seems rather small. There us no order to the place, you are passing rooms set up for meetings, there are places...More

This place has a very small selection of contemporary art. You will get through this place in a very short time. Yes it is free of charge and very close to the main square.

This is a very small museum a few blocks from the square. There are only three rooms so you can get through it quickly if it is on your tourist pass.
