ShoreTrips says...

Archaeologists are still accumulating evidence to describe all of the many ancient cultures of Peru, their relationships to each other, and the reasons for their decline from power.

This informative excursion takes you to two of Lima's outstanding museums. Our tour begins with a drive through the residential districts of San Isidro and Monterrico en route to the renowned Gold Museum. This private collection contains a staggering display of priceless Pre-Columbian gold artifacts, Paracas textiles, and ceramics, as well as silver, bronze, weavings, and more. The five main halls are split up into two floors, and upstairs you'll find a remarkable arms collections.

Next, it's on to the Rafael Larco Herrera Museum, housed in an 18th century colonial mansion. Here, you'll find an immense and invaluable collection of pottery, which has been assembled from all the known Peruvian cultures. Check out the reconstructed grave sites that show burial techniques, as well as the small cactus garden and a separate room with an extensive collection of erotic art on pottery. An exhibit of textiles made from feathers and a Paracas weaving that contains 398 threads to the linear inch (possibly a world record!) round out this collection.
