Terrific Knowledge builder both museum and site
Jun 2019 • Couples
We got a ride out and spent over an hour inside the museum reading every informational sign then taking in the accompanying visuals. To think this culture and civilization was functioning 1700, and more, years ago at such a high state of efficiency and skill is awesome. Their agricultural technique and sophistication in irrigation boggles the mind. Planting charts exist showing how to plant which plants. Of course the most highly visible and fascinating feature is the metal working. Copper, Gold, Silver all worked and used in ceremonial and hierarchy settings are found in the numerous tombs that have been unearthed to date. Priests, Warriors, Lord and old Lord, Guardian - each tomb holds the accoutrements of their rank, including whether they were placed in a bamboo encasement or a wooded one. Whether there was a female or child buried with you, or just a llama. Did you have sufficient vessels to hold you, how much loot were you buried with. Fascinating!

Must visit the archeological site next to the museum
Aug 2018 • Solo
The best part was the archeological site next to the museum. The museum was good but most artifacts were redundant from other other museums.

I took a collectivo from Epsel terminal. Each ride is 3 soles. Just ask for Sipan Museo and someone will take you to a bus. You will be dropped off in front of the museum. You can take collectivo back in front of museum to Chiclayo.

Immensely interesting excavation
Apr 2018 • Couples
We had a private guide help us tour this extensive huaca and museum area, and it proved to be extremely helpful in enabling us to understand the sheer history contained and exposed in this one excavation locale. Off the beaten track it may be, but it's well worth the time to explore. Another significant 'building block' in the understanding of Peru's culture and history.

A modern museum
Mar 2018
The museum exhibits its stuff in a modern way. The place is well located. Unfortunately, they did not have booklets or souvenirs regarding the exhibits.

One of the few museums with English in the region
Feb 2018
I was surprised by this museum - it turned out to be one of my favourite in the region. The exhibits are well presented and in both English and Spanish.

Great place to start understanding the Moche People
Oct 2017 • Couples
We visited the Museum and the Huaca, where the important burial of the Lord of Sipan and other rulers and members of the Moche elite were found. The Museum is located about 1 hr. from Chiclayo by taxi. It exhibits around a 100 of Moche high quality artifacts in a nice modern setting with good explanations . The ticket cost 9 soles. Worth visiting before climbing up the huaca and heading to other sites.

This museum is well worth a visit - as much as the archeological site where the tomb of Lord Sipan was found. Highly recommend it!
