  • This place is great! Mummies, textiles, ceramics, etc. Very interesting as they present the main cultures (Paracas, Nasca, Wari).

  • After long time again I come here and I have been a big surprise, is great... new textiles, new ceramics, new mummies, etc. Nothing to envy. It is a very interactive way to learn about our major cultures (Paracas, Nazca, Chincha, Wari, Inca) without words, transports you to the past from the first moment that you enter!

  • The museum displays a vast range of peruvian history as well as displaying mummies which have been preserved to a high standard. 
  • 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.
