When visiting the desert's two ancient temples, don't miss Site Museum, a museum showcasing artifacts recovered from the archaeological sites. Once the capital of the Moche culture, which thrived in the area from 100-600 CE, the temple complex has fascinated archaeologists and historians for years. The state-of-the-art museum--designed in a similar pyramid shape--houses some of the best finds from the temples,. Admire ceramics and ornate textiles, and learn about the Moche people, their way of life, traditions, and beliefs. Using our international travel planner, Trujillo attractions like Site Museum can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Very nice building housing many Ancient pieces of pottery from the Moche era. There are explanations in most showcases in English more »
Nice place which deserves 5 stars! Good expansions in English in every corner! Well done. I recommend taking 1h for the first information before the tour at the ruins.
Great exhibits, included explanations in Spanish and English.
