Museo Arqueológico Review

Exhibitions at the Museo Arqueológico, run by the University of Buenos Aires, can be a little confusing due to a lack of labels on artifacts. The two mummies on display are considerably less well explained and cared for than those in Salta's Museum of High Altitude Archaeology, but no less fascinating. The clothes, hair, and skin of the first, which was found in San Pedro de Atacama in Chile, are well preserved. Other rooms show Nazca, Inca, Moche, and other remains from the past 2,000 years. Keep your ticket stubs, as they'll get you in to the nearby Pucará de Tilcara ruins, where some of this museum's artifacts were found.
