CUSCO | Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de la Municipalidad del Cusco (Museum of Contemporary Art of the Municipality of Cusco) was established in 1995 and has around 280 works on display from Peruvian, Latin American, and international artists.

It’s an interesting museum, not so much for the artwork but for the fact that it’s hard to tell that it’s a museum. The art is displayed in various rooms across two floors, mostly without any plaques identifying the artists or providing any information (neither in Spanish or English). The building is a working municipal building, and many of the rooms and wings contain offices rather than galleries. Indeed, walking through this museum you can’t help but feel like you’re walking through an office building that happens to have some nice art on display.

Entry is part of the boleto turístico, a pass that allows visitors to see Cusco’s most important historical sites and several museums. It’s worth checking out if you’ve got the pass and have a little time to kill, but don’t make this one a priority.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
