#6 of 32 in Museums in Lima
Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • Precious collection but lacks more order and cleanliness to the first floor of the Museum. Upon entering, we saw a couple of rooms were without light and is not well appreciated. In addition the collections are labeled but a legend that explains each piece that is missing. Excellent uniform of President Pinochet.

  • Far away, dingy, run down, no attention has been paid to the exhibits in decades. At least 3/4 of the museum is comprised of military artifacts and has nothing to do with the "museo de oro" The gold e...  more »
  • I never had the opportunity to visit him and to know him I disappointed, if well is that it has a number of incredible weapons, relics, uniforms and pieces of gold. Everything is too saturated, there are no legends of that notice, both in the weapons section arqueologicas, lack order and cleanliness also parts. For the cost of the entrance and visitors should improve, the Larco Museum apredan.

  • 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!
