A selected collection of the wonderful handmade works made in the Old Peru in gold and silver, preinca and inca periods. You can see the riches and the believs we had many many years BC before Christ.

Interesting pieces of Peruvian history. I expected a little more, but got my money's worth. I think I wasn't supposed to take those photos.

This was once upon a time a private collection. It is a nice location and lots to see. Does make one wonder how many things are in private collections that maybe should be available to the public to see.

Although the most famous museum in this place is the Gold Museum, I find much more nice, interesting and amazing the weapons museum which is located in the same building but in the first floor. You can find the most amazing collection of any kind...More

Highly, highly recommended visit. Taxi ride needed to Santiago de Surco, but the Museum was absolutely full of amazing gold and silver Peruvian objects from doors to masks to everything. It must be the whole of the gold the Spanish didn't melt down and send...More

No photographs allowed, and they are quite strict about this, there is a gift shop inside the museum and they have books and cards about the various artefact, so might get a few cards you coul copy for the slideshow.
