Fodor's Expert Review Museo Arqueológico Nacional Brüning

Lambayeque Museum/Gallery

While not nearly as exciting as the Sipán museum next door, this archaeological museum helps reveal how the different pre-Inca civilizations lived their daily lives. Excellent interpretive displays show how the Moche, Lambayeque, and other pre-Inca cultures such as the Cupisnique, Chavín, Chimú, and Sicán 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.
