  • We loved the Museum! There is abundant archaeological remains and paracas cloaks. Vilos funeral bundles and many mummies. The Museum features guide... a very nice lady, always willing to answer our questions. The Museum also has a small sample of the lines of nazca.

  • Relatively small, but very well organized, save parts and riches that tell the story of the ancestors of the region.

  • 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.
