  • It is a small museum that tells the history of the tribes that lived in the area. The more interest ate from the Museum is located at the end. A series of skull and mummies in very good state of conservation. I had the good fortune to be accompanied by an archaeologist who worked for decades in this museum as a Restorer, and I could enjoy the story of each one of the pieces exhibited there.

  • This is a surprisingly nice museum. They have many artifacts from several eras and people groups of the area. It also has lots of information in both English and Spanish, and the price of admission is quite cheap, only S/. 7.5 ($2.25).
  • I recommend it. They just remodeled. It is fairly complete. Failure to improve a bit the guides.
