About this Tour
The vast array of archeological sites and museums around Chiclayo can be a bit overwhelming, so take a private tour to the impressive Brüning National Archeological Museum; your private guide provides a personalized experience, informing you about the Moche, Chimu and other ancient Peruvian cultures while you admire the collection of artifacts. See the beautiful jewelry, stone works, textiles, pottery, headdresses and more that make up the museum’s collection and provide a little insight into these fascinating civilizations.
After hotel pickup, head with your private guide about 15 minutes northwest of Chiclayo to the Brüning National Archeological Museum (Museo Arqueológico Nacional Brüning) in Lambayeque.
When you get inside, your guide will lead you around, explaining the museum’s 1,500-plus pieces. Named after German researcher and antiques collector, Hans Heinrich Brüning, who moved to Peru in 1875, the museum houses the extensive collection of artifacts that Brüning gathered during his time there, as well as additional items that have since been donated and acquired.
The museum covers several of northern Peru’s ancient cultures, including the Moche, Chimu and Chavin. See pottery, ceremonial objects, wood items, extravagant jewelry, precious stones, metals, textiles and more, including items from the famous Lord of Sipán tomb. Don’t miss one of the museum’s highlights, the Sala de Oro (Gold Room), where many gold objects like masks and vases are kept safe.
After your tour, your guide will return you to your hotel in Chiclayo.
