“The most amazing peruvian textiles ¡¡¡¡”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

This is an small building which contains 2 exhibitions. The first one is a showcase for the peruvian pottery and the second one is a place to learn about the most delicate and elaborate textiles.
It is free but you HAVE to leave a contribution . They really need the money ¡¡¡¡

“Definately worth a visit while in Lima”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Astounding collection of Huacos (peruvion pre-colonial pottery) and an even more impressive collection of Pre-Inca and Inca period textiles. Probably the most complete collection of such textiles in the world. Unbelievable what these Peruvian cultures more than 2000 years ago were able to produce. Guided tours only. Reservation necessary. No need to show up without previous reservation.

“1st class collection, 2nd class exhibit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Pre-Columbian ceramics and textiles that are among the most exquisite I've seen, but the museum sadly needs a renovation to better display it's treasures and tell the story behind them. The 1 hr. guided tour is all in Spanish unfortunately.
