Exuding genteel European history, Casa Museo Villalobos houses a large collection of antiques from across "The Continent," situated within a century-old late colonial house. Enthusiastic and knowledgable guides accompany visitors through the history of the building and the antiques themselves--including how the original owner came to acquire these prized gems. Pay special attention to the house's intricately carved street entrance. The museum encourages a hands-on experience with the items displayed, a privilege not found in many museums. Tour guides are available in English.

State of the art museum it's all about Vargas Llosa.. a very interesting life , hidden gem , should have more promotion...
