I’m generally not a fan of so-called contemporary or modern art, but this one turned out to be surprisingly pleasing to the senses and enlightening as the classics do for me. .. Quite frankly, we didn’t purposely sought out this place, we went because we...More

The museum is in a nice location and inexpensive to visit. In fact the outdoor part is free and has some nice grounds and things for children to do. A very nice restaurant is there serving excellent and fairly priced food with a Peruvian contemporary...More

MAC is a small museum so visitors should tailor their expectations accordingly. It might be useful to check what exhibitions are going on before deciding whether to make a visit. At the time I visited, there were 2 interesting exhibitions, so I enjoyed my visit,...More

Like most Contemporary Art Museums the MAC in Lima contains a brief standing collection plus several rotating exhibits, the transgender exposition in March a powerful one that I'm glad to have seen though others would likely disagree.

The museum only had 2 exhibits, one had modern art and the second was an interactive exhibit. Not worth a visit right now, maybe when they open the 3rd exhibit.

nice modern building but only two rooms are open. There is nothing much to see. I am quite disappointed.

The museum is well designed with only a few nice and diverse exhibits and a good gift shop, small park, and cafe. On a nice day, you can spend a pleasant couple of hours here on the way to a walk around Barranco.

Perhaps the poorest collection of modern art I've seen in any contemporary art museum anywhere I've been in the world. Incredibly derivative art with a strong GCSE flavour, although the collection may change regularly so can't pass complete judgement. Considering there are 24 free modern...More
