Some of the museum is old pottery and stones similar to other places you can go to throughout Peru but in this little museum there is an abundance of old photographs, from 1920’s on. There is also a room on Sillustani with three mummies and...More

A lovely quiet, small museum centrally located near the main square. Very friendly staff. We were given a small pamphlet to assist us and many of the exhibits have descriptions in English too.

The other reviews are right--this place is definitely hard to find! But definitely worth visiting. If you're interested in the history of the time pre-Spanish invasion (as well as Carlos Dreyer), this is a good place to go. The mummies were really cool. My brothers...More

For some reason nobody suggests you to go here and even a policewoman two blocks away from it couldn't give me directions to find it. It's a small museum with a very nice collection,even mummies from Sillustani.

We went here randomly while in Puno and are happy we did. It's a very local museum, with information on Carlos Dreyer, but mostly lots of local history, dating back to centuries before the Spanish invaded. There are mummies, lots of artifacts from the Incas...More

Museo Municipal Carlos Dreyer was a delightful find in Puno. The museum is small and will,only take an hour or so to visit, but it is full of wonderful history, from archeological finds to textiles, and event art. We really enjoyed our visit here.

With an excellent guide leaflet in English it was easy to be enthralled by the story of Carlos Dreyer and enjoy the artefacts on display. Worth a visit.

Very well presented, not huge, but lots of pottery, gold & silver items, and textiles. Plus the paintings of German exile Carlos Dreyer who lived in the Andes for 50 years. Pre-Columbian and Colonial - it's all here. Plus the Mummies - take your time...More

This museum is just off the Plaza de Armas, and is worthy of a visit if you are into museums. If you aren't, you may consider missing this one. There is a small section of pre-Inca culture pottery and items, great, textiles, and volcanic ceremonial...More

Really great small museum, we were surprised some of the items you could actually touch, but didn't think we were supposed to. Great collection, especially of pre-columbian artifacts. The one bit of amazement is a small black idol that appears to be an ancient human...More
