Allow half an hour at least, there's lots in here. And don't miss the delightful garden behind the museum, full of treasure.

We were frustrated because the museum staff weren’t there to sell us a ticket for a long time - but once we got in, it was great. The mummies and stone statues, plus the fabrics and dioramas were all very interesting! Plus it’s easy to...More

The only downside was that all information was only Spanish. Garden was lovely with very nice statues.

Small museum with Recuay pottery and a nice garden with stone sculptures. Good orientation for local archaeology and history. Limited labels in English.

We had a spare morning and went along, 5 soles to get in but as there was no one on the cash desk the security guard allowed us in and out for free. Few rooms of interesting artifacts and a couple of mummies. Almost all...More

It was a little empty of artifacts and interesting things to see. Had a lot of models and recreations. The information is in Spanish only. The garden outside is nice and there is this hilarious cat who just walks about meowing. It's worth paying just...More
