  • Museum mixes works by Dreyer with relics of Puno, you can see several pictures of the artist but also there are rooms with different ceramics and mummies found in the vicinity. It lacks more detail in the exhibitions

  • It is a place not to be missed in the main square of Puno. You have small samples of several pre-Inca cultures Peruvian but varied.

  • They did not offer us tour. Several ancient Inca and pre-Inca pieces. The most curious, some mummies of Sullistani.
