Lima Art Museum
The Lima Art Museum displays a vast selection of the best art from throughout Peruvian history, from the pre-Inca civilizations to contemporary art. Besides, there are always at least three temporary exhibits from both local and international artists. The building itself, a neoclassical structure from the 1870s, provides a great example of Republican architecture. The surrounding gardens are a pleasure to walk around. There is a metro station right next to the museum, so consider using public transit in order to avoid the traffic jam.
