Absolutely a must see when in Lima. We combined it with a Miraview tour by open bus. The biggest collection of ancient gold artifacts in the world. This is not only a gold museum but also ancient weapons from all over the world can be seen.

Enjoyed this museum very much. Thee levels for viewing. Entrance level is begins with medieval armor and weaponry and continues toward the 20th Century. Lower level is for the gold and silver ... actually a giant vault. Fabulous collection. The upper floor has many displays of burial cloths collection from Ica mummies, etc.

I do not know why this museum is so far out of the way, but it certainly is worth visiting. The collection of gold is astounding, but the collection of weapons, uniforms, etc. from all over the world is amazing.

This was one of the 'have to do' items that was recommended for us in our one day in Lima. It was OK for a couple of hours, but not too much more. The gold collection was interesting and the mummies were neat to see. The weapons collection was much larger than expected.

It was a long way off from the most of tourist's attractions, but it was worthy of the visit. There were lots of artifacts and history in that basement. The bonus was the artifacts on the first floor from weapons: swords and horse riding equipments.
