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

In this museum you'll find so many things to see and learn, you'll discover things about pre-inca culture that maybe you never heard about before and even more you never knew. Normally Peru is associated with The Inca Empire but before they arrived there were...More

This museum is amazing and wonderfully designed. Do not miss. A true gem of the Moche civilization. Nice gift shop and snack area. Many nearby restaurants.

To begin with the museum replicates the "pyramid" which are flat at the top It's impressive to see all the ornaments that the rulers from the 3rd century in northern Peru had. The great gold and silver workmanship is just amazing even with today's standards...More

So Sipan. Pretty much as awesome as it gets if you want to play fantasy with tomb raiding and bedecking yourself in jewels. Start with an archeological complex not really discovered until 1987, with a spot of pre-looting. Discover 5 layers of burials. And have...More
