Fodor's Review

This history museum provides an overview of Arequipa's development into a modern city. Highlights include a photo and caricature gallery of local aristocrats, and exhibits of archaeology, natural history, and architecture. Housed in the 1804 Sala Naval building, there are extensive displays of old maps, paintings, and war memorabilia. Great for a quick lesson on Arequipa's urbanization.
