Really fascinating museum with detailed history of the Inca and other cultures that lived in Lima. Well worth a visit.

As an educator, I found this place to be more informative than I expected. I left there with a deeper understanding of the changing face of Peru throughout world history.

I loved both the gold from the era of Inca and all the other times as well as the arms of the world. I was surprised about how many arms they present.

This museum, in my opinion, is better than the Larco and Anthropology museums. Not to be missed. A stunning collection of gold, silver and gems. Which together with arms and outfits make it a must see. Allow 3 hours to view.

It is situated very far from the city centre. It took us one and half hour to get there from the city centre by taxi. But it was worth it. The museum has not only many ceramics, gold items, mummies, but as well a good...More

This museum delighted us with beautiful pieces in gold, copper, bronze and silver and precious stones from pre-Inca and Inca times. We were expecting to see more Inca gold but sadly realize that much of it was melted down by the Spanish. This museum is...More

museo larco or museo oro del peru (3 Replies)
museo larco or museo oro del peru???? Which one to visit? Comparison? WHich is closer to Miraflores? Thanks

Response fromafzPeru|
Both are worth a visit. The Larco has a large collection of Pre-Colombian erotic pottery. Both are about 30 minutes from Miraflores, in opposite directions. You can combine a trip to the Larco museum in Pueblo Libre with a visit to the Santiago Queirolo pisco bodega, right around the corner. The Museo de Oro also has a branch in Larcomar, but I wouldn't recommend this as it's very overpriced.
