  • In this Museum, located in the Centre of Trujillo is home to an important collection of archaeological ceramics. By pre-Incan pottery to know the way of life of the inhabitants of Northern Peru in those times, depicting everything from everyday life: food (vegetables, fruits, fish, hunting), wildlife (snakes and frogs), birth, life, aging and death, sex, wars, soldiers, sacrifices, music, anyway the pottery was the encyclopedia at the time. There is also the skull of true Rapunzel. A skull with two incredibly long braids (they look more like a Dread). There is also an interesting sitting very well preserved Mummy. Important to make the tour to explore the information available.

  • The architecture of this place is beautiful! I really loved the spaces, the decor, and silence. Super nice, the last time I went there was an exhibition of Peruvian artists paintings and some sculptures. It would return a thousand times more!
