My Peruvian friends said if you have to choose one museum, this is the one and it did not disappoint. Large armaments collection on first floor that had no interest for me but the Peruvian gold collection is outstanding.

A selected collection of the wonderful handmade works made in the Old Peru in gold and silver, preinca and inca periods. You can see the riches and the believs we had many many years BC before Christ.

Interesting pieces of Peruvian history. I expected a little more, but got my money's worth. I think I wasn't supposed to take those photos.

This was once upon a time a private collection. It is a nice location and lots to see. Does make one wonder how many things are in private collections that maybe should be available to the public to see.

Far away, dingy, run down, no attention has been paid to the exhibits in decades. At least 3/4 of the museum is comprised of military artifacts and has nothing to do with the "museo de oro" The gold exhibit is not of very good quality...More

This out of the way, private museum is daunting at first when you enter the main collection building because of the arms collection which is huge and sadly presented more like a garage sale than a museum. I suggest bypassing the guns, swords, and regalia...More

Although the most famous museum in this place is the Gold Museum, I find much more nice, interesting and amazing the weapons museum which is located in the same building but in the first floor. You can find the most amazing collection of any kind...More

No photographs allowed, and they are quite strict about this, there is a gift shop inside the museum and they have books and cards about the various artefact, so might get a few cards you coul copy for the slideshow.
