Fodor's Review

While not nearly as exciting as the Sipan museum next door, this archaeological museum helps reveal how the different pre-Incan civilizations lived their daily lives. Covering the Moche, Lambayeque, and other pre-Inca cultures such as the Cupisnique, Chavín, Chimú, and Sicán, there are excellent interpretive displays, showing how people fished, harvested, and kept their homes. There's also a wonderful photography exhibit detailing the archaeologist Hans Heinrich Brüning and his experiences in Peru beginning in the late 1800s. Descriptions are in Spanish, so an English-speaking guide is recommended.
