We hired a guide for the 45 minute walk through the Chan Chan ruins. It was a necessity. The ruins are beautiful, but very difficult to understand the symbolism and purpose of most of it without a knowledgeable local. Bring a hat or umbrella and sunblock, water and a snack perhaps. You will be in direct sunlight for the entire tour! Super cool.

Just driving into Chan Chan you passed partial walls still standing. The site of the main structure was impressive in size and layout. Tour guide was a little over the top in my opinion, but did point out the various areas well. Museum was smallish, but still interesting.

The museum I found quite underwhelming, some spectacular relics and objects well preserved and presented with suitable explanations, however it wasn't as taken by the museum as I the site itself.

On purchasing your ticket, have a look around the museum but then I would 100% look to pick up a guide (the site is far far better knowing the reasons for it (including aliens?)) and head to Chan Chan itself.

We visited the museum as part of the combination ticket to see Chan Chan and two other huancas (located closer to Trujillo). The ticket costs s/10 per person.
The museum is small and takes a few minutes to walk around and then it's possible to walk to Chan Chan (1.5 kilometres) to see the ruins.
The two huancas can be reached by taxi or independently with collectivos from Trujillo.

Good day out. When you arrive to the entrance of the park you will be greeting by a taxi man posing as a tour guide. He will offer his services for a price. The more of you the merrier and in hindsight it does save a lot of time if you take the taxi. We opted to walk it , which was also great but do take plenty of sunblock and water. The taxi will take you around all the sites. And I Recommend paying at the end.

Its a good idea to do the museum first, gives you a good understanding of the people who lived at Chan Chan and the future invasion/clash with the Inkas… We hired a guide at the site which was well worth it, or else you just feel like you are going thru a big cement maze. Only down side to the site in my opinion is the restoration which is a bit "disneyishhhh" apparently we were told, up to 50% is modern cement… But then again you get a better idea of how this place was, almost 2000 years ago! Hope this review was helpful!!!

We visited after seeing ruins of Chan Chan I had hoped for more interesting artifacts from the tombs but later found that those are mostly at another museum, still this is included in the ticket to Chan Chan and is nearby so worth a visit.

It will take you about 30 minutes to visit the entire museum, and is an excellent closure for a visit to Chan Chan, on the way back to the city. They have a beautiful Peruvian naked dog, that looks like a sculpture.

After visiting the Chan Chan Ruins, I walked to the museum. You can enter with the same ticket. There's explanation in Spanish and Enligh. In the room with the scale model, they display a movie that interacts with the mini ruins! Really cool

After having visited the Palace temples of Chan Chan this museum is a good accompanying visit to fill out the narrative of the Chimu civilization that prospered pre Inca conquest. To illustrate, the Inca captured the king and 26,000 craftspeople and took them to Cuzco to work for them and keep the rest of the city state in line. Their influence was immense in North coastal Peru. The aerial view of the compounds of Chan Chan confirm the immenseness of just this one site along the Moche River valley.
