I found the objects displayed in this museum interesting probably because I had a guide who could identify what every object was used for and could explain Inca and pre-Incan histories that went with the objects. If you chose to visit, bring a guide.

We are planning to visit the Museo Oro del Peru and wondered... do we need a private guide? What is the level of detail on the signage (and is it available in English). Are headsets available? About how many hours should be allotted to see the Museum? Muchas Gracias!

I'm going to do a slideshow of the inca history for my local photography club, after my visit to Peru. I would love to include some pictures from the museum. Are visitors allowed to take pictures?

No photographs allowed, and they are quite strict about this, there is a gift shop inside the museum and they have books and cards about the various artefact, so might get a few cards you coul copy for the slideshow.
