  • The finds in the city of Chan Chan are stored in this beautiful Museum. The story of the pre-Inca cultures counted by ceramics and personal effects found in the tombs.

  • If you visit Trujillo you can not stop going to Chan Chan, is an ancient city that is wonderful, I recommend to go early so you are not much sun and you can make the trip calmly, not forget to go to the site Museum is small but helps you understand and see the magnitude of what It was.

  • I went here first to skip getting a guide at Chan Chan. I bought the guide here that explains the rooms at the site. The museum itself is short but fascinating and the 10 soles for entry includes entrance to Chan Chan, Huaca de Esmeralda and Huaca del Dragon also. If you plan on doing the visit yourself get dropped off at the museum first. I got dropped off in front on Chan Chan and had to walk 15 minutes to the museum.
  • Very beautiful site, I recommend to go with sunscreen, comfortable shoes for walking and simple for the souvenirs which are cheaper on the door of the historic center, (find from magnets for the refrigerator to s/.2,50 to Pearl River s/.50)

  • It is small, clean and tidy. The journey is short but the presentation of the demo video is very good. You can visit before or after the ruins, should preferably be before so they have a better idea of the various sectors of the Chimu city tour.
