Museo Larco or Larco Museum


Member Rating 5 out of 5 by ruelllyn on July 24, 2007

The museum is a privately-owned museum still run by the family of the founder archaeologist Rafael Larco Hoyle. It boasts approximately 45,000 pre-Columbian pieces including gold, ceramic, and textiles.

The erotic gallery is a must-see! It's full of ancient ceramics in sexual positions. It had a profound effect on me. I couldn't believe the intricacy and knowledge these pre-Columbian cultures had.
