Lima Museum Tour

Description

Lima Museum Tour Peru's capital, Lima, was once reputed to be the most beautiful city in Spanish America.
Today, there is still a certain elegance to the old colonial centre, and the city hosts a string of excellent museums. Here, we can find the two most important museums of this part of America, showing the best pieces and collections of pre-Colombian art of Peru. It is recommended to combine the Lima City Tour with the visit to your preferred museum: the Museo de Larco OR The Peruvian Gold Museum.

El Museo de Larco houses the biggest private collection of pre-Colombian art in the world. It boasts the great exhibition of 'gold and silver from ancient Peru', and the celebrated room of exotic art. These pieces are well-known for being exhibited in the best museums in the world.

Peruvian Gold Museum
The collection "Mujica Gallo" has become known as the Gold Museum of Peru. We have a guided visit of this collection of gold pieces from diverse pre-Columbian cultures which exhibits works in gold of objects and jewels of incalculable value. The fame of the gold of Peru attracted numerous European adventurers 500 years ago and was the cause of the end of the Inca Empire and gave origin to the Spanish Vice Regalty of Peru. Moreover, this museum exhibits an important display of ancient and modern arms that is considered one of the best it its kind. Situated in the district of Santiago de Surco, the tour allows us to appreciate part of the residential zone of modern Lima.
