  • This gallery (actually not a museum) was an excellent discovery, very close to the Plaza de Armas. The artist and his upholsterers are very talented. Go for a walk, 20 minutes will be enough to delight your eyes! The team is very welcoming and will gladly explain the artist's work.

  • In this space, you will have contact with the Peruvian culture, with the tools used to elaborate these beautiful works of art, and with the history of this respected artist. One of the few artists who still make the hand the beautiful loom-shaped paintings that are so famous in Peru. Your ticket is free, and a video with all the history of the noble Artist is presented to us. Some of your works that are exposed can be purchased, or even, you can order something for it to do. A quick visit is welcome, and the flexible service schedules help to get to know this unique space.
