Small museum with Recuay pottery and a nice garden with stone sculptures. Good orientation for local archaeology and history. Limited labels in English.

This is a very interesting little museum packed with some nice artifacts. Not very expensive, 5 soles for the entrance. You will need to know some Spanish to read the descriptions but not really necessary if you are just taking a look. What sold me...More
