Lima

Gold has been used to ornament mummies and embellish temples, as a means of exchange and as an indication of wealth. Lima’s Gold Museum displays centuries of golden craftsmanship. There are ceremonial knives, funerary masks, crowns, earrings, nose ornaments, scepters, and more. Many of the objects were brought in from Nasca, Moche, Chimú, and Sicán sites. It’s fascinating to see all the ways that gold has been used.

There is also an Arms Museum, which houses a huge array of weapons, including samurai swords, Italian pistols, small cannons, horse saddles, and crossbows. Some of the weapons date back to 1,200 B.C.

Additionally, the museum has collections of textiles, including knitted feathers, vases, and pottery that represent the popular customs and traditions of Peru’s people. This tour provides travelers a fascinating encounter with Peruvian culture, custom, and tradition. It lasts 3 hours.
