This is not very interesting museum. Visit only if you have 3 hours to spare. Everything in the museum is in Spanish. The best part was a collectivo ride there. You can take a collectivo from Terminal Epsel. I was charged 3 soles to get...More
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.

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

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
