After seeing the Lord of Sipan museum, I assumed that this would be a let down. I was pleasantly surprised though. They have 4 levels of artifacts with plenty of gold in the basement. Shows the diversity of artifacts from the area.

This museum holds large collection of pre-Inca pottery and gold pieces. Pieces were collected and acquired by a German explorer, Brunning. Get a tour guide to get the most out of the collections and history. Entrance fee is 8 soles, sound $2.75 USD

After going thru the Museum Reales de Sipan, I went to this museum. Great displays, interesting scenes of various aspects of those civilizations, fishing, homelife, spinning and weaving, pottery making. Great pottery displays plus an adults only erotica section!
