  • The Museum is very nice, very illustrative and educational displays. They close early (4.00 pm) why should become day. The visit is liable to complement with the trip to the pyramids (are next to the Museum) and the climb to the vantage point of Mount purgatory. Bring lots of energy, water and sunscreen.

  • The promoters of this museum imagined so that it fits into the landscape. He does so that it is almost invisible. It was designed for a purpose, above all, educational. Many school groups attend it, which does not always have other visitors to take full advantage of the explanations which are indicated (in Spanish and English only). The first room presents a model giving a complete view of the archaeological site. Then, teaching pictures explain the Lambayeque civilization. Artists also presented scenes of the Peruvian life realistically. One of these is a shaman in activity. This allows us to realize the weight of ancestral traditions and customs. Pre-Columbian rites marry with Christian symbols that face them no problem. Ugly civilization, Chimu, Inca believed in a heavenly life, an earthly life and life after death. Catholicism also. He's so not too difficult to the Jesuit missionaries to convince local people that Jesus was a God, a God more powerful than the others since the conquistadors had defeated the Incas. Instead of destroying the ancient beliefs, the Spanish clergy has absorbed them. The most interesting didactic table is a line of time, as a snake, showing the evolution of the different civilizations which succeeded to the Peru, in parallel with what was going on at the same time in the world. The Museum's collections give a more concrete picture of daily life at the time of the Lambayeque civilization. At that time, we were wearing beautiful jewelry, especially the nobles and clergy. We used the spoon, they had needles, material for weaving, chisels,... The ceramics were not only ceremonial; they were used in daily life. If you have a little time, do not miss the walk to the panoramic platform that offers a broad view of several pyramids.
