  • State of the art museum it's all about Vargas Llosa.. a very interesting life , hidden gem , should have more promotion...
  • Fantastic museum..its like taking a trip through Vargas Llosa’s life with him. Excellent. I din’t know why it is not in the guide books. Wish they sold his books in English and also wish the videos were in English because I missed some of the details...but it is a truely wonderful place to visit.
