The museum has very impressive and interesting artifacts, mummies, ceramics, textiles etc. You see and learn stuff. Unfortunately most of the information was in spanish!

It's a small museum but it has a great collection of mummies from pre-Inca era. It also has come pottery and wovens. Over all, interesting..... but in a very small scale.

Was impressed with the quality here, good museum that goes through many of the eras from pre-Inkan through to the end of the Inka reign, artifacts are presented nicely and there is a good amount to see. We spent about 1.5 hrs here.
