My husband and I started getting interested in the precious gems stones in the handmade jewelry. With all of the mining in Peru, especially being known for the Peruvian turquoise, we anted to learn more. We happened to notice this museum while driving by the Plaza San Martin in a taxi and made a point to go back and visit it. It is the type of place you only visit once, but we felt we learned about the gems and it was worth it. We chatted with the extremely knowledgable guide who was a store house of information. Basically this guide is what made it worth it, so we tipped him in addition to the entrance fee.
