Overview

A transportation service will pick you up from your hotel and will transfer you to the Surco district, to visit the Gold Museum, which houses one of the most singular museum collections in Lima City. It includes exquisite textiles, pottery and gold artifacts of various pre-Hispanic cultures apart from an arms collection composed of twenty thousand pieces from different times and parts of the world.

The showcases of the “Gold Museum of Peru” display the craftsmanship of several centuries of Peruvian history, mainly in pre-Inca gold. There are decorative items of all the cultures, such as, embossed and weaved nose ornaments with cut stone pendants; sets of filigree figures depicting birds, men, or monkeys; mantles, bracelets and earflaps of the Vicus culture; lizards, weasels, felines, bags of coca leaves, earrings and belts of the Frias culture; pectorals with zoomorphic designs, flat or embossed crowns of the Chancay culture; funerary masks with twisted rays or serpents from Ica; and masks with open mouths and teeth, wristbands, shin protectors and spatulas of the Nazca culture.
