What You Can Expect

Experience Lima: An Evening at the Larco Museum with Dinner

Dinner at the Larco Museum

Your night out in Lima starts as you are picked up at your hotel in an air-conditioned minivan and whisked off to the Larco Museum for your tour with your knowledgeable guide.

Enter the museum, housed in an 18th-century mansion built on top of a 7th-century pyramid, and discover the treasures of ancient Peru as you walk through the museum’s galleries. The amazing array of pre-Columbian artifacts is sure to impress -- see the renowned collection of more than 50,000 pots, and admire the large displays of ceramics from the Cupisnique, Chimú, Chancay, Nazca and Inca cultures. Marvel at the intricate jewelry and masks, and see the Larco’s renowned Moche portrait vessels – ceramic vessels in the shape of human faces, which are unique to the Moche people who lived from 100 to 800 AD.

After your tour, sit down to an exquisite dinner of Peruvian specialties, which you’ll enjoy in the museum’s restaurant. From this prime spot, enjoy the cozy atmosphere and enjoy views of the Larco’s beautiful gardens. Taste some of Peru's traditional dishes, including Lomo Saltado (tenderloin strips), Causa Limeña (mashed potoato dish) and more!

When dinner is over, you’ll be driven back to your hotel.

Felt like we had the museum to ourselves. Really enjoyed our guide and the information that she provided not only on the artifacts but how they relate in historical context.
