It is a very complete museum that has an innumerable number of pre-Inca pieces. It also has a very wide schedule from 8 to 7 pm and has guided tours in Spanish and English.

I am not sure if they were working on the exibition and part was closed or it really was that small. It was pretty much just one room with few pieces in. Only text in Spanish, so we were not even sure what we looked at - but thats ok. We were lucky that we lived close by and that... More

A must! Very educational and fascinating! Buy your artesan souveniers in the gift shop! Much better quality.

This museum is closed for renovations. It is not indicated on their website. It was disappointing after the walk up there but I felt sorrier for the people behind me who pushed bikes the whole way up .

We took a cab to here and climbed the steps. Guy cleaning the steps told us it was closed for renovations. Nothing on their website said it was closed. Annoying!

Be sure you're in good shape to make the climb up to this museum. The structure is very attractive, but the exhibits are minimal and I was not impressed.

Its a bit out of town (quite a walk), and there is no information at all in English - neither as part of the exhibition or a guide (written or spoken) which makes it really hard to appreciate the collection.

Very well organized museum, with a set of mummies, not all very well conserved, but worth the visit.
