  • It is a good Museum but is a little small, it is not necessary to go if they have already gone to others in peru. You should have Guide.

  • The Museum is open the first Sunday of each month free. It is a small museum, it doesn't take long to navigate it. It would have been much better with a guide but said Saturday there is no. You have dimly lit to preserve the parts and is forbidden to take pictures or enter with backpacks, which can be left at the entrance. University students with University meat or institutes, over the age of 60 or retired pay 4 soles, children 1 sol and 7 adults. 50. I was impressed particularly see the hairdo styles found in the hair of mummies in perfect condition: you can see different types of braids and dreadlocks. I have not seen this in any other Museum in the Peru. Finally there is a replica of the lines of nazca as looks from heaven. Very nice.

  • Not too many artefacts but still informative. It's a pitty that taking photos is not allowed
  • It's a good place to visit, while you are waiting for the bus to other cities. It's not huge, but you can observe real ruins of 4~5 other different cultures of ancient Peru.
  • No photo here to protect all amazing handicraft and cultural relic.
  • Ok, small. Many better places to visit
  • 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).
