Beautifully organised museum. It was empty when we were in it, but it's well worth a visit. Great artefacts and well described cultures (Chimu, Moche, Nasca, Incas...) and a superbly well preserved mummy woman with the skin still on. Well worth a visit!

The Moche ceramics are very plastic and are the main source for our knowledge about the culture, together with the discovered friezes. On display are also some wooden and stone sculptures.

The casa is a real charmer. Murals of Venice decorate the courtyard walls. The dioramas are sweetly homemade looking, but very accessible for school kids and the ceramics as good as you will see at Lorca. It is the only museo that gives a broad...More
