This museum is well worth a visit - as much as the archeological site where the tomb of Lord Sipan was found. Highly recommend it!

Don't miss it when in north Peru. Very rich in artifacts from Sipan. We had the pleasure to visit it with a knowledgeable guide who made it an unforgettable visit

Great museum, almost everything has English descriptions. Definitely my high light of Lambayeque. The entrance for students (with Isic) is only 3 soles which also include archeological site. Don't miss it.
