Museo Oro del Peru, Lima

3.7
#6 of 47 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.

  • Even if I'm not too much into museums, this one was on my list as this art type impressed me after reading an article in National Geographic. The dark room was perfect to illustrate the power of this ...  more »
  • After this visit I understand the conquistadors to have done everything to get that gold. Precolombiennes especially Muchicas and Inca civilizations would sell this metal. The firearms section is impressive but it lacked information considering the large amount. A guided tour is recommended.

  • Great place, just the guides are a little overpriced than a few years ago for a not so enthusiastic service. I would suggest to go on your own and dedicate at least 2 hours to go at your own pace. A lot to see, many historic gems.
  • Nice museum to visit with family! This attraction holds many artifacts and collections to hold the interest of anyone who visits! Also within a few blocks of restaurants.
  • Some interesting and fascinating pieces. Not well curated at all. Far from everything else in Lima. Yet worth the visit.
  • Looking at inca treasures was spectacular. They are well conserved, but I'd appreciate more tags in English.
  • This is an amazing place and the amount of gold on display here is amazing. Worth the visit.
