  • I went up to the museum by mototaxi (5 soles) and the entrance fee was 15 soles. I like the building itself, I stayed there to have a cappuccino and I saw the typical hummingbird which you only see in...  more »
  • At the beginning we doubt if enter but it was a great success have done. The Museum is small but complete, with good information and above all 219 well-preserved mummies that were found in the lagoon of Condores there closely! Its history is fascinating and the visit is super recommended to learn more about the Chachapoyas culture and other Incan civilizations in the region! Input: 15 soles

  • The museum has a very nice architecture and some interesting artefacts from the chachapoyan culture. However, all the information boards and historical references are in Spanish. And my basic knowledge of the language did not really help. So I left knowing pretty much same as little about the chachapoyas as before going there. Also, the mummies are kept in a separate room with a glass window through which not much detail is seen, so it's not like you are walking among them or anything :) I would still recommend this place to those who understand the language well or have a particular interest in the chachapoyas but in general I've seen much more intetesting museums, for example the moche(another pre-inkan culture) museum near Trujillo was incomparably more interesting and informative. However, the Lleymebamba region itself is very beautiful, we spent a full week here. It's definitely not just the museum that is worth seeing. P.S. don't miss the kenticafe arcross the road ;)
  • Good museum. I wish more of the detailed commentary was in English. I also wish that they'd let you take a photo of the amazing mummies. But a really nice, well laid out regional museum.
  • Great place
  • The Museum is a 2 hour drive of Chachapoyas. Very tiring trip.
