Pre-Columbian Art Museum in Cuzco -- The Pre-Columbian Art Museum is the first Peruvian museum that presents visitors with the aesthetic aspects of the exhibited objects that belong to ancient Peruvian cultures.

The Museo de Arte Precolombino (Pre-Columbian Art Museum) was an Inca ceremonial court around 1450 AD. In 1580 became into the mansion of the conqueror Alonso Díaz and in 1850 of the Earl of Cabrera . It was restored to be the Pre-Columbian Art Museum since June 2003.

This extraordinary Cuzco historic monument, holds the only museum in Peru dedicated to rebound the arts of ancient Peruvian cultures.

The collection of 450 master pieces date from 1250 BC to1532 AD. They were selected among 45,000 objects located at the storages of the Museo Larco in Lima, by curators Mr. Fernando de Szyszlo, famous Peruvian painter, and Mrs. Cecilia Bákula, prestigious Peruvian Art Historian.

The exhibition uses texts in Spanish, English and French to emphasize the artistic context of the collection displayed in 11 showrooms inside the museum.

Its galleries were designed to meet the highest standards of modern museography enabling the visitors to admire Pre-Columbian art in its best expression.

The Cabrera Colonial Large House .
In the small Nazarenas Square, the Casa Cabrera is located in one of the most places in the Historical Center of Cuzco City.

The building synthesizes the urban architecture of the imperial city begging with segments of an Inca wall still preserved in its structure, up to the republican balconies overlooking the patio.

The house was know as the Santa Clara Convent until the XVII Century, when it was bought by Jerónimo Luis de Cabrera y la Cerda, whose heraldic coat of arms can still be seen today in the front of the house.

The Museum

This is a space conceived for the appreciation, delight and approximation to the artistic wealth of the creations left to us by ancient men, who since immemorial times established a path for Peruvians artists to follow throughout all generations, a place from which contemporary generations can learn and feel motivated by.

The work exhibited in this museum summarizes the feeling and artistic sensibilities of the men of Pre-Columbian Peru. The Museum intends to rescue the unique work of those anonymous artist whose creations are still a reason for pride and admiration. We give them our eternal homage.

"The day when collections that come from remote lands all over the world, abandon their ethnographic museums to occupy their deserved place in art museums, it's no far away."
