The Leymebamba Museum is an archaeological museum located in the Amazon. The museum is mainly dedicated to the Chachapoyas culture and was inaugurated in June 2000. In 5 rooms, the Leymebamba Museum exhibits the local archaeology finds, ethnographical history and features informative activities about the ancient civilisation of Chachapoyas.
The Revash mausoleums, which was built in the 14th century, are tombs that belong to the Chachapoyas culture. Archaeologists know almost nothing about these mausoleums, except that the buried were persons of great importance for the local community.
