  • It is a very large space with a fairly small collection, but it is worth to see numerous heads original nail, including several showing the entire process of transformation of the human head on the animal's head. Let us hope that collection will increase so that we can learn more about the Chavin culture. You should visit in conjunction with the Chavin de Huantar temple to be appreciated properly.

  • I have visited Chavin de Huantar four times; the first time in 1985; to the last in 2008. A real surprise has been to find this museum collection that has. As construction is not notable. I would have liked a building more camouflaged with its surroundings. However, the Museology is good. Pity that there were no people to attend the souvenir shop.
