Hit or miss. I love contemporary art but the first exhibit that we saw honestly looked like a high school kid’s sketchbook... or doodles on the algebra homework crumpled up at the bottom of his backpack. But the second exhibit displayed incredible, hyper-realistic watercolor paintings...More

We went inside just because it was included in the Cusco ticket Luckily it is small and easy to get out as there is nothing to see there. It's a joke

It was a rainy last day & the museum was free with the Boleto Touristico. Thank goodness as if you'd had to pay you'd feel cheated. But it got me out of the rain for 30 minutes i wont get back. The exhibits are very...More

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
