    First, you should know that all metallic is not permitted. Thus, mobile, money, etc. Leave it in the car or leave in a separate room. What I don't understand is the photograph/film ban. But now Peru and their rules! The Museum is built like a pyramid, you start at the top and after a tour, it ends at the bottom of. Senor Sipan and his grave be represented very well and realistically, that gives a special charm all. Is required for the tour some time, if you are traveling independently. The Museum is worth in any case a travel.

    Not to be missed is this Museum and if you can with a professional guide. Changes a lot do it with someone that tr has all the details that you could get lost without the wise indications of a good guide. We count with the magnificent presence of Mrs Maggy (tour operator sensations of America). His hand, we made a trip to the former dignitaries moche, its customs and its rich ornaments of precious metals. Spectacular!

    The best museum I've seen so far in my trip ! An amazing collection of extremely fine gold and silver jewellery found in the tomb of Sipan of the Moche people. An absolute must if you're interested in pre-hispanic cultures of south America. It's worth taking a guide.

    I was really surprised how well done this beautiful museum about the archeological findings in Sipan is. Absolutely worth a visit.

    This is a very good and interesting museum. If you don't know Spanish you might want a guide though since only one floor has texts in English.

    This museum is pretty good, it is closed on Mondays so be aware of that. It houses many awesome artifacts of ancient Peru, so that is really cool
