A Must in Lima Museums


Member Rating 5 out of 5 by Andherewego on November 18, 2009

Located in the Pueblo Libre District, the Larco Museum is itself a jewel; please don’t forget to visit it before any come back to home.
Founded in 1926, the Larco Museum showcases chronological galleries providing an excellent overview on more than 3000 years of development of Peruvian pre-Columbian history. The permanent exhibition is divided into the different main pre-Columbian areas (North, Centre, South and the Highlands) and offers an important collection of ceramic work, showing various techniques they used. There is also a rich collection of jewelry made of various typical semi-precious stones, and a textile gallery with the record of weaving. Then of course, we finish the visit by the Erotic Gallery, then having a drink in the café... A MUST, actually!
