What a surprise! Snr Jorge Nicolini has assembled an astonishing collection of cars - many rare, most beautifully restored in his on-site workshop. Well worth the effort to come here. We had the pleasure of meeting Mr Nicolini himself, who showed around the museum, telling us the behind-the-scenes stories of many of his cars. Plus you can go into the... More

Absolutely amazing, One of the best collections of cars in the world with some very unique exhibit’s. Definitely not a museum that would have been on my “must do list” while in Lima however after visiting no trip could be complete without seeing this fascinating collection.

Not only are there dozens of restored cars on display, from a range of eras, but there is also a working restoration garage on the premises that my son was really thrilled about. He discussed...

Didn't know I could review this museum. Visited several years ago (about 2011), and still have vivid memories (and my Nicolini cap) of our visit. In addition to great cars in a state of perfect restoration, you can watch the craftsmen restore "junkers and barn-finds" into museum pieces. It is a moderate trip from Central Lima, but well worth the... More
