Lima Larco Herrara Museum Excursion Reviews

Admire the 45,000-piece collection of pre-Columbian art that is housed within the Larco Museum mansion. Built atop a 7th-century pyramid, it features enchanting gardens and a gold and silver gallery.
Paired with the Indian Market as a Princess option.

Paired with the Indian Market as a Princess option. The museum visit itself a bit too brief considering its collection - most of my group opted to detach from the tour guide and group (the exhibition galleries are compact and relatively sequential) to view the artifacts quickly but independently from the crowd. The grounds are lovely as well - a visit here is better than no visit at all. Read Less

Easy Colonial Lima with Larco Museum and Lunch: We had about 13 people on a minibus. There was someone with a wheelchair on our tour, but there is a short walking tour downtown. There is a steep brick ramp at the museum but the staff took the person in the wheelchair up and down the ramp. At the restaurant there was one step to get to the bathrooms. Larco museum was excellent and well-signed in English, with gorgeous grounds. We ate in the museum cafe, which has a lovely setting and the food was good. We spent about 70 minutes in the museum and about 70 minutes at lunch, with the rest of the time spent in the bus except for maybe 30 minutes on the walking tour. Read Less

I thought the name of Museum show be Pottery not Gold Museum, there was 46,000 pieces of pottery and after a while you felt like you were looking at the same thing over and over again. I really didn't enjoy it after about 15 mins.

Too many of the same artifacts.
Sail Date: August 2015
Too many of the same artifacts. Too long of a guided tour, it should have moved faster and just touched on the key facts. The last part of the museum was the best.
