Great museum lols of cool things to look at and see loads of history. It’s not the biggest but definitely one of the nicer ones in Trujillo definitely worth a look. If you need a good tour guide agency use Mundo travel. They are fair, good and honest.

The museum is right next to the Huaca de la Luna, so this opinion goes for both. The Huaca is AMAZING... that last wall you see, in the people’s patio, is just unforgettable... impressive... astonishing... The entire experience makes you learn a lot about the cultures that lived in Peru, and how advanced they were before their collapse when Spaniards arrived.

Moche culture was 100-700 AD. They lived on the north coast of Peru on valleys. They were famous of painted ceramics and gold works. The pyramids are made of adobe. Huaca de la Luna was built about 50 million adobe bricks. It has three tiers. Pyramids were for administrative and religious centers. Distance between these two pyramids is 500 meters. The Moche culture collapsed cause of the dryness.

Even if you've been to the Larco, this is a totally different experience of Moche art. The presentation and displays are beautiful and the explanations about Moche iconography are very helpful. Second visit and I hope to return for a 3rd.

For people that only go to Peru to see Inca ruins, you've missed out. The Moche culture in northern Peru, 200 AD, was amazing! The architectural site is easily accessible and the museum itself was one of the best in all of Peru. Excellent interpretive signs. About an hour from Trujillo, most guided tours do not include the entrance fee, but it is inexpensive.

This site museum that enhances a visit to the huaca del sol y la luna is spacious, giving the visitor ample room to examine the excellent variety of objects it contains. The organization of the displays is well thought out and there is a room dedicated to a scale reproduction of the entire site.

A fabulous archeological site in northern Peru that is exceptional in many ways. Excellent interpretive display boards throughout assist visitors with understanding the history and significance of this remarkable site. One could easily spend a day here.

Guy, from SalaverryTours.com, offered us a tour. 14-person van to Moches Ruins,
Trujillo town square and Chan Chan for $20 pp. We have to pay for museum and ruins at Moches at $5 per adult, guide free. At Chan Chan you pay for guide. Our English speaking guide charged $20 for six persons. Regis was our driver today. Tour from 0930 to 1400. Great job and very economical. NOTE: When you get off the ship in Salaverry you have to take shuttle to port gate. Few cabs there, but not many. Better to catch Salaverry Tour vans when you walk off the ship for best tour. Pan-Am Highway into Trujillo. Many Tuk Tuks. Museo Huacas de Moche and Archeological complex Huacas del Sol y La Luna. Costs $5 per adult to get into both with free guide to tour the Moon excavation area. Great time line chart in the museum showing when
different cultures were active in Peru. This particular complex active 100 to 800 AD. City of 20,000 people buried under the sand between the sun and moon. Started moon excavation in 1991 and opened to public in 1995 Used to be wall all the way up to Mount Blanca, which towers over the Moon by 900 feet.
