It took me two hours to see the entire museum, reading all the descriptions and seeing all the items...TWICE. If you're just passing by and taking a look at the most impressive items, it will take you no more than 30-45 minutes to check the...More

I think the people writing these glowing reviews must have gone to a different museum. This museum has 12 rooms with just a handful of pieces in each room. I'd be surprised if it takes even the most avid art lover more than an hour....More

The vast collection of artifacts shows wonderful connection with artistry from ages long past. The choice of handicrafts is excellent, beautiful and skillful work dominates. That we can take pictures, without a flash of course, is a plus. It's worth many hours.

This is a small museum with an amazing restaurant in the courtyard. It is in collaboration with the Museo Larco in Lima and the relationship is obvious. A nice capture of the history of the area

Our tour guide, Edgar from Inkayni, provided a guided tour of this museum which was fascinating. After seeing the exhibits of show we then went onto to visit many of the sites in the museum.

The building itself is beautiful and the artwork is very nicely displayed. There are captions to all the pieces in several languages though they are sometimes written in a pretentious fashion. This is an extension of the fantastic Larco Museum in Lima. Well worth a...More
