Lima Art Museum (Museo de Arte de Lima MALI) Tours

As the capital of a nation with thousands of years of indigenous, civilized culture, Lima is a city that, unsurprisingly, has world-class pieces of art. The broadest collection is the Lima Art Museum, where over 3,000 years of Peruvian art encompasses the Moche, Chimu, Nazca, Inca, and pre-Columbian cultures. During a guided tour of the art museum, follow the serpentine history of Peru through its many different periods, as told through the detailed themes of paintings, and the patterns of ceramics and textiles.

Much of the museum was completed renovated in 2015, and is a massive repository of New World art that provides a fascinating level of insight into the history of modern Peru. It isn’t just history on display, however, as much of the museum is also devoted to Peru’s contemporary art, from quizzical pieces from the abstract movement to pop and postmodern art.

Practical Info

There is no flash photography allowed in the museum. Visitor facilities include a café, free wifi, and elevator access for travelers with limited mobility. Many displays are in English and Spanish, and while no large bags are allowed in the museum they can be checked free of charge.

Did You Know? This is the broadest collection of art in Peru, and the only museum that features works from pre-Columbian societies through today.
