This museum has a lot of potential as the articles inside are really interesting, but there is not much commentary, and what there is, is in Spanish only.

Extremely well preserved artifacts and really interesting. Do the whole tour so you also get to see where they have found the artifacts. We went with Mocha tours and had an extremely good guide called Carmen. However at the museum we were not allowed to...More

We went there because the Lonely Planet talks about it highly so we thought it was worth a visit. Well, it was disappointing. They have two replicas of important and beautiful tombs yet there is no explanations or descriptions (not even in Spanish). I guess...More

My wife and I visited this museum with a guide. We really enjoyed it. Very educational with some great artifacts. Well worth our time. If you have the time, I would combine this visit with the Sipán Royal Tombs Museum and the Túcume Archeological Complex.

This museum is well worth a stop if you're on your way to or from the Bosque de Pomac (Batan Grande) archeological site. The museum has a lot of amazing objects on display, many taken from the tomb of the Lord of Sican, but many...More
