Once again you have to congratulate Peru for keeping the contents of the tombs local rather than shipping them to Lima. This is a modern museum and has some impressive displays. Some of the work restoring the necklaces must have taken years. In the last...More

Very much worth visiting this museum. The structure is well maintained and there are lots of indications and descriptions to help learn more about the Mochica culture. A must see place in this part of Peru

Whew...after the Bruning museum, this was a good step into the Mochica Culture and El Senor de Sipan. Some 12 or more tumbs, artefacts and history from those crazy adobe pyramids up and down the coast in lands of the Wari, Moche, Lambayeque, and more!...More

Built as a Moche pyramid, it contains much of what was found in the Sipan site all restored and displayed on multiple foors. One of the best museums of its type in Peru. And certainly gives you further insight into the Moche people. And it...More
