Fodor's Review

Although only two rooms, this museum packs a lot into a small space. The private collection of pre-Columbian artifacts includes some of the city's best ceramics. Imaginative displays reveal how cultures in the northern part of the region focused on sculptural images, while those in the south used vivid colors. In between, around present-day Lima, the styles merged. A second room holds an impressive number of weavings, including examples from the Chancay people, who lived in the north between 1000 and 1500. Call ahead to reserve one of the two daily Spanish-language tours, which last an hour and start at 3 and 4.
