It´s worth one´s salt to visit this museum.
As you maybe know, there´s not too much gold that stayed in southamerica, the most of it has been brought directly to Spain where the reyes of Spain lived more than 200 years only from the gold of southamerica. But there´s still a lot in Peru, you can find it e.g as well in the cathedral of Lima and in that museum you find a lot of beautiful works from the times of the Incas and other older cultures.
Besides you find a big exposition of weappons and arms, a lot of ceramics, parts of it typical erotic art of the Chimu culture (there is also a special museum of erotic ceramic arts in Lima = Museo Rafael Larco Herrera) and as well typical historical clothes.

Address: Alonso de Molina 100, Monterrico, Surco
