  • This is an amazing museum! The collection is incredible: huge and nicely displayed. Most descriptions are in Spanish only; however, a few have English translations as well.I wish I had had longer to s...  more »
  • Those who are somewhat more interested in the history of the Lord of Sipan, this is the place where the Royal tombs were found and you can see the tombs and a recreation of how willing the Lord of Sipan and other characters in more than 11 tombs. If you have the time, I would recommend a visit. Best if you go with a guide who will explain details of the site Museum. This near Chiclayo (45 minutes approximately).

  • This tidy little Museum has the great merit to make you understand what you visited on the site. Significant Guide for explanation of the graves discovered, restored, then closed. So the Museum has reconstituted these graves and so everything becomes "clear" with the guide. Also very beautiful pieces of ceramics of the period "Ugly"

  • important Museum, very important for the Peruvian archaeology and world because urges us to know more about the discovery of the burial chamber of the Lord of Sipan, which is equated with Tutankhamun's Tomb.
