This museum, in my opinion, is better than the Larco and Anthropology museums. Not to be missed. A stunning collection of gold, silver and gems. Which together with arms and outfits make it a must see. Allow 3 hours to view.

This private collection is more than just the thousands of gold artifacts. The displays of gold, silver, copper and fabrics are all located downstairs in what is a giant vault. While the gold items get the most attention it is the other rooms downstairs that...More

I spent around 2 hours here because of the tight schedule. However, I could easily spend half a day because there were so many displays. Most of the displays were weapons and gold objects which I don't have many opportunity to see in other museums....More

Lots of beautiful gold artifacts and an interesting collection of ancient mummies, along with a weapons collection featuring arms from all over the world and from many different periods of time. Eclectic, to say the least. A great visit!
