The Larco Museum has a spectacular collection -- especially when it comes to the older, pre-Inca civilizations of Peru. Our guide was Juan José and he was the best guide we had in two weeks in Peru, and that includes at least one who claimed...More

Wonderful place to have a brief knowledge about the ancient cultures in Peru. Highly recommend a guided tour. Our guide Juan Jose C. showed extraordinary knowledge and it grew a strong interest of the art and development of pre-inca culture in me.

Was lucky enough to be the only English tour participant and had a private tour by Jose Guillen who was fantastic and knowledgeable. Learned a ton about pre Incan culture and thoroughly enjoyed this museum. Also the founds are absolutely stunning!

Brilliant exposition of pre-Hispanic culture. The extensive collection is beautifully displayed, and explained, and provides a fantastic primer to pre-Incan Peruvian history. In particular, the funerary accompaniments, and the fantastic decorative pottery, of these early civilisations is very well shown, providing fantastic parallels with Egyptian...More

The Museo Larco is fabulous! We took the tour offered by the museum. Our guide, Jose Guillen, was engaging and very knowledgable. He brought the artifacts to life by pointing out details and telling stories. I highly recommend the museum, and take Jose's tour!
