Museo Oro del Peru, Lima
(3.5/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our online itinerary creator, Lima attractions like Museo Oro del Peru can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • incredible collection of unique pieces of gold, of pre-Columbian peru, do not miss such a collection and give an impression of the former goldsmiths

  • My wife and I have been to Lima several times, but we missed this one. At the recommendation of our driver, we spent an afternoon at Museo del Oro. The museum is a privately funded operation supported...  more »
  • Unable to get the file and do not meet this preciousness. ... Not only the Inca culture, but mainly the pre-Inca terracing. Precisosidades that deserve to be known.

  • Vast collection of modern/contemporary weapoms and pre columbian gold artefacts. Unfortunately taking photos inside the building. The museum could do with some renovating and audio guides, but is otherwise goof
  • 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.
  • el museo es genial
  • 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
