5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2012

Interesting tour with a highly knowledgeble guide. The weapons collection was very impressive for a private one. Great experience.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2013

Was not good.Started late and don't beleive was worthy the money.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better November 2011

The Gold Museum itself is great and defintely a must in Lima. The guide was also a nice person. However the tour was too short and, *unacceptable*, does not include a guided tour through the Weapons of the World museum, which could be even more interesting as the collection is really extense (even bigger than Gold's). The guide left us with only 20 minutes to visit the entire collection by ouselves, which is clearly insufficient. One word: frustrating.
