Museo Arqueológico Chiribaya
Lonely Planet review for Museo Arqueológico Chiribaya
Opened in 2008, the Museo Arqueológico Chiribaya houses an impressive collection of artifacts from the pre-Incan Chiribaya civilization, including well-preserved textiles and the only pre-Inca gold collection in southern Peru. The museum is housed in a beautiful colonial mansion that features design details by French engineer Gustave Eiffel, of Eiffel Tower fame. University student guides offer 40-minute tours in Spanish, English, Portuguese, French, Italian and German when prearranged.
