Exposition Park

This park, which once hosted Lima's International Exhibition, features picturesque buildings and an art museum with a peaceful ambience. 

Discover a peaceful atmosphere while you experience Lima's culture at Exposition Park. This 19th-century commons was originally built for the Lima International Exhibition and today remains the home of the Exhibition Palace. Wander inside and browse works in the Museum of Art of Lima. The park's lake and theatre are the scene of many live performances throughout the year. Join crowds passing through this entertaining area, which is always enlivened by street performers, vendors and travellers. 

With the advent of international exhibitions, worldwide gatherings of innovators and vendors that eventually led to the birth of department stores, Lima required an exhibition space. This park was constructed in 1872 to serve that purpose. 

Explore the park's shady lawns and bring a picnic to a grassy knoll. Kids can play games while you relax with a book. Check the events schedule and attend a live concert or a play in the park’s amphitheatre. 

Walk across the park to the Exhibition Palace and peruse the art exhibits on display. This building has served many purposes over the years, but its role since 1957 has been to house the Museum of Art of Lima. Admire its neo-renaissance design from afar; its steel framed facade makes for a great photo. Exhibitions within display Peruvian art. The palace charges a small admission fee. 

Nearby, marvel at the domed structure of the Byzantine Pavilion or climb the winding staircase of the  Moorish Pavilion. These buildings are worth visiting at night, when spotlights bathe their facades in a romantic glow. Grab a snack at food stalls nearby or buy pellets to feed to pond-dwelling goldfish. Spot a population of peacocks around the grounds.

Find Exposition Park south of Lima's centre. Get there by bus to the CIVA station or continue to the Flores station next to the park entrances. A number of surrounding hotels offer great views of the commons. After enjoying the park's peaceful atmosphere, join crowds at the Plaza Grau and the Juana Larco de Dammert Park.
