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 place is huge and so full of history I wish I had know before so that I could allocate another day to it. If you like fire arms this place will surely please your style, I mean when was the last time you had...More
In the 1960s, Miguel Mujica Gallo used his private collection, gathered throughout his life, to open the "Gold Museum of Peru and Weapons of the World". It is in a two-story building made of reinforced concrete and accessed through a vault-style entrance.

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 private collection is more than just the thousands of gold artifacts. The displays of gold, silver, copper and fabrics are all located downstairs in what is a giant vault. While the gold items get the most attention it is the other rooms downstairs that...More

You dont need a private guide, you may do it on your own. Museum is well organized and signage is available in english. I just dont remember if headsets are in english as well - I dont like them. so I dont use it. The time you will have to spend depends a lot on you, as you can surely stay all day long here wandering the enourmous collection, remember that this is 2 in 1 museum, if you like weapons you can easily stay many hours just in the weapons department. So, if you like detail, save the day. If youre more an "overviewer" or doesnt have interest in weapons, a couple of hours is enough.
museo larco or museo oro del peru???? Which one to visit? Comparison? WHich is closer to Miraflores? Thanks

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.
