Royal Tombs Sipán Museum Chiclayo Celebrates 15th Anniversary
Nearly 2.5 million domestic and foreign tourists have visited the Royal Tombs Museum of Sipán since its creation in 2002, informed the director of the aforementioned cultural site, archaeologist Walter Alva.
The Royal Tombs Museum celebrated its 15th anniversary on Wednesday, November 8, with a unique number of cultural, artistic and recreational activities.
Walter Alva stressed that these fifteen years have served to consolidate the museum as an important tourist destination. “It has allowed us to develop a series of research activities despite the few resources we have had available; but it is also allowing us to assess the needs for growth in the future,” he stressed.
He added that the museum cannot remain as an entity dedicated to the presentation of a wonderful cultural treasure, but that it has to become “a great cultural center”.
Alva described the need for other exhibits from a wider range, including an exhibit of all northern cultures of Peru, an exhibit for children and a paleontology exhibit to make good use of their collection of fossils.
