The highlight of that tour was the diorama of the Nazca Lines. There are also huacos and relics of ancient pre-inca cultures. A definite must!

This was well worth doing. More than other museums it shows the technology of the Paracus culture (most sophisticated) to Nazca to Inca (least sophisticated).

It's a small museum but it has a great collection of mummies from pre-Inca era. It also has come pottery and wovens. Over all, interesting..... but in a very small scale.
