star-5
469 Reviews
The Larco Museum (Museo Larco) is the only place in Peru that houses an extensive private collection of pre-Columbian artifacts. The museum displays more than 4,000 years of Peruvian history with tens of thousands of ceramics, textiles, pottery, metalware, and other excavated findings discovered by the affluent Larco family.
 
The Basics
Housed in an 18th-century viceroyalty mansion, the Larco Museum is a beautiful space favored among locals and tourists for its chronological overview of Peru’s rich history. Visit the neatly categorized rooms on your own or take a guided tour to get a thorough understanding of ancient Peru. To expedite entry, purchase advance tickets online.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Larco Museum is a must-visit for history and archaeology buffs.
  • A stop at the Café del Museo is highly recommended for the beautiful garden views and a taste of Peru’s national dish, ceviche.
  • The museum also features a storage room, which is open for public viewing, with more than 45,000 arranged and cataloged pieces.
  • All of the museum’s exhibition rooms and gardens are accessible to wheelchair users. Free loaner wheelchairs are available on the ground floor.
 
How to Get There
The Larco Museum is a 30-minute drive southeast from Miraflores. Alternatively, take bus IO-89 from Parque Kennedy in Miraflores and get off at the corner of Avenida Cipriano Dulanto (La Mar) and Avenida Juan Valer Sandoval (Cueva). The museum is a 10-minute walk from the bus stop.
 
When to Get There

The museum is open daily from 9am to 10pm, and to 6pm on December 24, 25, 31, and January 1. Lima is lovely in the spring and summer months, when the bougainvillea, which drapes over the historic white mansion, is in full bloom.
 
The Story of Museo Larco
In the 1920s, Rafael Larco’s father gave him an ancient Peruvian vessel, sparking his interest in his country’s history and his desire to discover more artifacts. He was a pioneer in Peruvian archaeology and led many expeditions, funded by himself and private donors, to uncover thousands of artifacts and save them from tomb raiders. With a desire to display Peru’s beautiful history to the world, he decided to open the Larco Museum in 1926.

Such an great museum and a must-do when in Lima! You can easily spend an hour or longer walking through the different rooms. The artifacts are absolutely amazing, especially when you think about how long ago they were made. Enjoy a coffee or glass of wine in the garden cafe afterwards for the complete experience!
