  • the Museum has impressive qualities of historical pieces of the pre-Hispanic cultures of the Peru, but still falls well short on how much exposure and greater dynamism is missing, using better technology or weekly projections, I believe that it would improve.

  • 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.
