The Palacio de la Exposición, a building that houses the Museo de Arte de Lima - MALI, is one of the most beautiful examples of Lima's eclectic architecture. Conceived and built as the headquarters of the first great public exhibition in our country, the "Great Exhibition of Arts, Sciences and Industries", held on the occasion of the fifty years of independence, is easily adapted to the functions of the museum, since it was built expressly for exhibition purposes.
It was built between 1870 and 1871 during the government of José Balta. It is a pioneering building in Latin America, as it is one of the earliest and most important works done with the new technique of construction in iron. Designed in the Neo-Renaissance style, its design and construction are due to the Italian architect Antonio Leonardi.
The manufacture of the columns, made of iron and imported from Europe, is attributed to the house Eiffel. Surrounded by statues, gardens and a zoo, the Palace was the heart of one of the most important urban projects of the last century, following the example of the European universal exhibitions.
