  • Good collection of mummies the pre-Hispanic cultures of the area. Ceramics and paracas looms can be seen very close and in a good state of conservation. The entrance is modest: school 1 Sun and adults 7:50. The only bad thing you can take photos :(

  • 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.
