  • Not far from the archaeological site, well presented and informative. You can visit the museum before or after the ruins themselves, but definitely make time for it.  more »
  • If you visit the Chavin de Huantar archeological complex, they can not miss the Museum, also the entries are the same for the two places. It is about a kilometre from the complex and we were walking, with Hat and umbrella (which is needed in the city by rain season). A well maintained Museum, images, models and genuine parts like heads clavas, among others. You can take the return bus to Huaraz Museum door or finish that it is 5 blocks more or less.

  • I was early still even it was about 10:30. The whole museum just me. It cost 7 sole Very good information and history about Chavin culture. The short video about 7 minutes also a must watch. I spent about one hour. When I left there was a tour bus coming.
  • Good museum with much to see.
  • Modern, informative, children friendly and very close to the main town
  • Very good collection of heads clavas recovered from the archaeological site. It is breathtaking to observe each of the faces that are completely different between them. Very good presentation of the pieces.
