Pedro de Osma Museum (Museo Pedro de Osma) Tours

Pedro de Osma Museum (Museo Pedro de Osma)
Housed in the Palacio de Osma, an ornate mansion with intricate wood floor inlays, hand-painted frescos, and stained glass windows, the Pedro de Osma Museum features Peruvian artworks from the 5th to 18th century. Along with one of the best painting collections in Peru, the museum has sculptures, engravings, and historical books. 

The Basics
Surrounded by lush landscaped gardens in Lima’s Barranco neighborhood, the museum displays ancient artworks from the Tiahuanaco and Inca cultures and sculptures, silver art, furniture, engravings, books, and textiles from the viceregal period of Peru. The 18th-century Cuzco School paintings are particularly noteworthy. 

Travelers may visit the museum as part of a private half-day tour that includes an exploration of the Barranco district, Lima’s most vibrant and artistic neighborhood. Accompanied by a local guide, admire the colorful colonial and 19th-century architecture; browse boutiques for art, crafts and jewelry made by local artists; and look out over to the romantic Bridge of Sighs (Puente de los Suspiros) next to the museum. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Bring cash to pay entrance fees to the Pedro de Osma Museum.
  • A minimum of two people are required for museum tours.
  • The museum is closed on Mondays.

How to Get There
The Pedro de Osma Museum is located on Pedro de Osma Avenue in Barranco, easy walking distance from most neighborhood hotels. From other parts of town, such as Miraflores, take the Metropolitano Bus, which bypasses traffic on its very own designated lane through the city. Make sure it’s going south (Sur), get out at Estadio Unión–Sur stop, and walk about four blocks to the museum. 

When to Get There
Like many churches and museums in Lima, the Pedro de Osma Museum is closed Monday. On all other days there are five guided tours, starting at 10:50am. The most popular times to visit Lima are during the high summer season (December to April) and important religious holidays such as Easter (March or April) and Carnaval (February).

The Silver Gallery
Following the wishes of its patrons, Pedro and Angelica de Osma, the museum has a room dedicated exclusively to silver art (plateria). The works from their private collection comprise the country’s most important display of the smithing art. Make time to admire the detailed craftsmanship of these pieces, which run the gamut from religious masks and altarpieces to a woven basket and a sculpture of a bull.
