We very much enjoyed our visit to this quaint museum. It is in a relatively small venue that is, unlike many modern museums, very down to earth. There are guided tours in Spanish or English, a gift shop, and a small café. Subject matter and...More
It's a pretty chill museum. You go, wander, learn, and nothing else is expected of you, The presentation, design, and title cards could be nicer, but it is free, so I'd better not complain. I will visit again. It's cool to learn about plants.

This museum, while small, took me a while to get through. For a fair price, I learned alot of new information about Peruvian culture and history. I was also able to see some pretty cool historic artifacts I had never before encountered. At the time...More
