Museo Oro del Peru, Lima

3.7
#5 of 32 in Museums in Lima
See and learn about Peruvian artifacts and weaponry from around the world at Museo Oro del Peru. Originally found in the personal collection of Miguel Mujico Gallo (who gathered items during his world travels), the artifacts have since been donated to the state for display in this museum. Here you can see various artifacts, mostly made of gold, from Peru’s history. Alongside these exhibits are displays of military armaments from around the globe. Most of the artifacts have only Spanish explanations, though you can hire an English-speaking guide outside the attraction for more detailed information.

  • For both gold and the culture of Peruvians for this fabulous collection of arms which we has good surprise... never seen anything like this! Without being an aficionado of guns, I must admit that it is huge.

  • Wonderful trip. Safe and clean location, in the month of may, too cold, take warm clothes. can walking all over town. ease in feeding. just be careful when you cross the street, motorists do not respect nor the local residents themselves. try to use wifi in the hotel. Indico know machupicho, do this tour.

  • Excelent museum. The guided visit is really good. Beautiful exhibitions. I had a great time.
  • Main exhibits in basement are impressive and well maintained. Lovely gift shop is pricey. 1st floor and outside shops are dated.
  • Great collection of pre incan goods but relatively expensive and with liitle interpretive information
  • Definitely NOT A MUSEUM, it's more of a collectors basement. The foundation directors who take care of the museum after 2001, don't care about the museum or history, only the profit the museum brings. Very UNKEPT, seems like they didn't maintain or even bother dusting off any of the displays since the last time the collection left the place, back in 2014 (last time the exhibition left this location for an international exhibition) Nothing compare to the Larco Museum, safe time and only come here if you have time to kill.
  • Probably the best little museum in South America. Amazing collection of ornate swords and weapons from around the world, including intricately carved ivory sword covers and weapons from the naval battles that occurred as the Americas were under European control. Lots of gold and peruvian history, too!
