I have been in this museum as a child and that was more than 20 years ago and I can say I am impressed on how well maintained and clean it is. They have a huge collection of items from different towns and cultures in...More
The National Museum of Archeology, Anthropology, and History is located in Pueblo Libre, a suburb 5 kilometers west of downtown Lima. It is worth the trip. I have visited here several times in the past 20 years, but it had been 4 or 5 years...More

My husband and I got directions and a walking map from Museo Larco to the National Museum of Archaeology, Anthropology and History of Peru on Bolivar Square, a good 20 minute walk away. The route follows a blue line on the road that winds through...More
