A very well organised museum detailing three tombs in different layers during Moche period. Luckily the artefacts were not looted and are on display showing the exquisite workmanship of potters and metal workers! No one should miss this museum. Information is sadly not always in...More

Very much worth visiting this museum. The structure is well maintained and there are lots of indications and descriptions to help learn more about the Mochica culture. A must see place in this part of Peru

Whew...after the Bruning museum, this was a good step into the Mochica Culture and El Senor de Sipan. Some 12 or more tumbs, artefacts and history from those crazy adobe pyramids up and down the coast in lands of the Wari, Moche, Lambayeque, and more!...More
