We went along to this museum looking for an overview of the different cultures and populations that had lived in Peru. This was mostly told through artefacts such as ceramics and fabrics. We hired a guide who spoke pretty good english, but mumbled and spoke to so fast it just seemed like she was trying to get the tour over with as quickly as possible. As a result I couldn't hear her well, and unfortunately all the signs around each artefact are written in Spanish only. There is a gallery of photos on the 6th floor representing terrorism in Peru from 1980-2000 which was really interesting. Overall the place is worthwhile, I just felt it could have been more useful had either our guide been more interested, or we had literature in English to view the museum ourselves.
