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.

  • It is an exhibition of a private collection. Therefore it is not a museum as such. Income is costly. It has two distinct parts a pre-Columbian era. It has good objects and a pair of mummies. If do not guide it loses much of the story, and what would you do is see only objects with very little description. Then has a section of weapons of the world, I thought it was interesting, and a wide range of uniform from Samurai, passing by England, Germany, Spain, among others. The problem of this museum is the price and far away is the tourist circuit.

  • Excellent Museum of gold with jewels preincas and incas. Remains in Monterrico, a little away from Miraflores, but has an excellent collection of jewels and weapons.

  • Despite being a little away from the traditional circuit, is worth the view. The gold Museum is inside a vault in the basement, full of ríquissimas parts. Before arriving there, has a Museum of arms, of various ages and nationalities, veeeery interesting. Worth the view!

  • More people need to see and visit this museum. A vast collection of pre-hispanic gold artifacts. And the upper level of the weapons and guns collection is amazing old reliques from emperor's and presidents. Unfortunately photos are forbidden inside.
  • Museum was very interesting. Very large collection of antique armory. However, after we paid the entrance fee and stepped inside the gate we were confronted by another person telling us we needed to pay another $30/ea(US) for an English speaking guide. After the tour, and as we were leaving the guide asked us to pay him, telling us we didn't pay him on the way in, (which we had). We argued with him for fifteen minutes and told him we were not going to pay twice. We later found out that he was not an employee of the museum, but an independant guide. Beware.
  • Nice collection, have mummies, pre inca jewlery, a large collection of swords and guns. There are very few explanations though
  • Whoa! Am going to have to check this out since a lot pirates came to Peru and stole our GOLD.Muchos piratas binieron al Peru a robar nuestro ORO.
  • Surprisingly very good. The outside is not great, but the weaponry area is fantastic.
