GUIDED TOUR TO THE BEST MUSEUMS OF LIMA

DESCRIPTION:

9:15 hrs. You will be picked up from your hotel in Lima by our local guide and then you will join a group of tourist on our bus. We start our tour visiting the Larco Herrera Museum which has on display remains that show the world of the ancient Peruvians from around 3000 years ago. Among the most spectaculars remains, we will see the great collection of Ancient Erotic Art, that is, without doubt one of the best attractions in the city of Lima. In addition to this great erotic collection, visitors also can see galleries with pieces of gold and silver. Unlike other museums, this place is the only one that has over 45.000 archaeological pieces properly classified. Our second visit takes place at the Museum of Archaeology, Anthropology and history of Peru. This is the oldest museum in Peru, and has on display a vast and varied cultural heritage. Its galleries houses a great array of ceramics, textiles, metal works, organic material and mummy bundles, spanning the entire history of human occupation in Peru. Some of the most important legacies at the museum are the monoliths, where standout the famous Estela of Raimondi, a perfect carved block of stone, representing an ancient god bearing a walking stick and the Tello Obelisk, which portrays the old divinity of the Chavin Temple. According to archaeologists, these carving monuments date back from 1000 BC. Here we will also visit the impressive Inca gallery, also called The Tawantinsuyu Room, which displays, in a very didactic way, the evolution of the Inca culture. Among its main attractions, we will see in a scale model the great Sanctuary of Machu Picchu and other Inca monuments found in Peru. Afterwards you will be conducted to a local restaurant where we will enjoy traditional Peruvian food. After lunch we will drive to the Gold Museum. The Gold Museum is one of the best museums of Peru, due to its large variety of pieces made especially of gold and silver. One visit to the Gold Museum will allow us to learn about the great skills of our ancient artisans who worked with metals and an array of precious stones. One of the pre-Inca cultures that stand out in the manufacture of jewellery made of gold and other pieces of religious characteristics is the Chimu Culture, which flourished around 1200 AC. During our visit we will be able to see the famous Ceremonial Knife, known locally as The Tumi. It is said that the Tumi was related to the different bloody rituals practiced by this culture. Another culture that also stands out is the Moche Culture, which developed around 200 AC, and also left behind an important legacy, including a large number of pieces made of gold, many of which are on display on this museum. Among the most spectacular golden artefacts, we will see sandals, nose ornaments, and sets of filigree figures depicting birds, men and monkeys, mantles, bracelets, earflaps, earrings, belts. In one of its galleries, one also can see staggering pieces of gold made by the Inca culture. This great museum also houses a fine collection of Weapons, featuring firearms, swords, and other weapons of war from different parts of the planet, being recognized internationally as one of the best collections of the globe.
