  • It's worth with a guide to go. Some background knowledge is needed to understand the finds from the pre Inca period. With guide, it was interesting. Not overwhelming, but definitely worth watching.

  • The site museum exhibits pieces in replica but is very good, especially q is a few blocks from the place where the remains of the Lord of Sipan were actually found. It is a visit not to be missed, it is really impressive. Forced to go.

  • We had the good fortune of visiting the Museum with Luis Chero, one of the archaeologists who made the discoveries and now director of the Museum of site of Sipan, a unique opportunity to listen live explanations. The visit to the huacas was Seyra/Seyla hand (I'm not sure write it well, forgive me) another archaeologist working at the Museum... another luxury girls both of them. We will come back to see us.

  • The museum at the actual archaeological site is far superior in concept and execution to most other museums of Peruvian antiquities. For one thing, it is very well maintained, and also you are allowed to take photographs inside the museum. there has been a concerted effort to keep the artifacts here in Peru, and not to have them exported to the global antiquities trade, as often happened in the past.
  • No competition from the usual tourism "Peruvian" .... It is North of Peru. .. great museum dedicated to the treasure of the Tomb

  • Personally I was a little disappointed and even if the price of the entrance is right 8 soles €2 for adults and 3 for student. But in the end the transport of 3 soles for each journey of Pomalca Sipan (more can be of Chiclayo) it amounts to 14 soles for Peruvians is much like the price is the same for foreigners and locals. The museum itself is interesting and small with a video showing the excavations notably but do travel on purpose that not worth the detour in my opinion. The second part of the archaeological site is more interesting because outdoor and in its natural context, but that this is maybe not the shot except for the lovers of archaeology and search #tourisme #astheque #ceramic #sculpture #tomb #squelette #. tradition #local #ville #city #sipan search #ciudad #chiclayo #peru #america #latina #photography #traveler #solo #woman #backpacker #annaphoenix #phoenixworldtour
