This museum has a fantastic collection of artifacts. Sadly no pictures but it's worth the time to go through and look at everything. The items are in very good shape and well preserved.

We stopped here during my exchange program, and while it was not the most interesting museum to me, the museum was great! It was very informative and had a lot of artifacts. It would be great for someone interested in architecture.

I traveled with my wife last year, we both learned a lot from the Moche culture. Peru is beautiful. The food is very good and the people very affectionate.

If you are going to see the ruins, you just have to go here first to get the history and perspective. Do it with a docent or an audio tour to get the proper perspective.

The Mochica culture fluorished some centuries before the Incas in the north region of the country. Its main religious center was located in the Huaca del Sol and Huaca de la Luna (closely located each other). You can easily visit them from Trujillo and experience...More
