We tried to visit on Tuesday, Dec 19, 2017. Opening time (in theory) is until 4:30 PM. We got there at 2 PM. Door is closed. We knock. A bemused doorman opens. "What do you want?" "We'd like to visit the museum" "It is closed"...More

Beautifully organised museum. It was empty when we were in it, but it's well worth a visit. Great artefacts and well described cultures (Chimu, Moche, Nasca, Incas...) and a superbly well preserved mummy woman with the skin still on. Well worth a visit!

This museum is worth visiting to give you an overview of the different pre-Inca cultures that existed in this area of the Northern Coast. But it's much more interesting and worthwhile to visit the sites themselves if you have the time.

I really enjoyed this museum although you do need to speak Spanish or have a guide to fully appreciate the exhibits. They give you a little leaflet in English where you buy the ticket but it only has the summary text for each room and...More

The Moche ceramics are very plastic and are the main source for our knowledge about the culture, together with the discovered friezes. On display are also some wooden and stone sculptures.

I think it is 10 or 12 Soles --- it is an easy 6 to 10 min walk from Pl Armas -- nice museum but signage in Spanish
