Mario Vargas Llosa House Museum

After being carefully rebuilt and fitted out, the birthplace of Mario Vargas Llosa, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, became the first museum to feature innovative technology and an educational display spread out over two stories, narrating the writer’s life in chronological order through holograms and 3D films. There are a total of seventeen rooms, with the visit beginning in the room where the author is said to have been born. The museum tells of his time at the Leoncio Prado military school, the Universidad Mayor de San Marcos, and his early trips to Europe. The house museum also features the writer’s international awards and other personal belongings
