It tells you the story from cultures to what is machupichu going through the colonial era. Income has a cost( approx. 4-5 dollars) but it's really worth it.
ペルーの歴史を一通り勉強するのにうってつけの博物館。あまり大きすぎないので1時間半から2時間あれば余裕をもって回れる。入って左手前の部屋から奥へ、右奥から手前へと順に回っていけば、古い文化から新しい文化へと時系列順に見て行くことができる。 織物関連の展示が非常によかった。スペイン語がわからなくても目で見てだいたいわかる。 テーヨ（有名なペルー先住民考古学者）の部屋で見た当時のノートや、「テーヨのオ... more »This is a great museum for studying peruvian history. It's not too big, so if you have an hour and a half to two hours, you can go around with plenty of time. If you enter and go from the room in front of the left to the back, from the right back to the front, you can see the old culture in chronological order from the old culture to the new culture. The textile-related exhibit was very good. Even if you don't understand Spanish, you can see it with your eyes. The notes i saw in the room of Theyo (famous Peruvian indigenous archaeologist) and a replica of "Taeyo's Obelisk" were also worth seeing. However, when I went there, i was sorry that the Moche culture room, which was my main target, was under construction and I thought there were fewer related exhibits than usual.
CLOSED for 4 to 5 MONTHS for repairs due to termite damage! We used the museum website to plan our trip and when we arrived we found out they are closed. The museum website should be updated with big bold red lettering on every page saying they are closed, especially on the page with the open hours. Right now the website only says they are closed in the news section and on one photo on the home page in normal white font, and that photo changes every few seconds to other photos not saying they are closed.
